Established in 2001, ACSI exists to provide a strong, collective voice on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues on behalf of our members. Our members include 37 Australian and international asset owners and institutional investors. Collectively, they manage over $1.6 trillion in assets and own on average 10% of every ASX200 company.
Our members believe that ESG risks and opportunities have a material impact on investment outcomes. As fiduciary investors, they have a responsibility to act to enhance the long-term value of the savings entrusted to them. Through ACSI, our members collaborate to achieve genuine, measurable and permanent improvements in the ESG practices and performance of the companies they invest in.
ACSI staff undertake a year round program of research, engagement, advocacy and voting advice. These activities provide a solid basis for our members to exercise their ownership rights.
