ESG RA Members

By becoming a member of the ESG RA working group an organisation publicly states that it values ESG-inclusive research in the investment process, and is committed to encouraging and raising the profile of ESG-inclusive research. Superannuation fund members of ESG RA commit to requesting  that their Australian equity fund managers include ESG as a category in their panel structures, whilst fund manager members commit to including ESG considerations into their brokerage panel structures (or if they only ‘tag’ brokers for research will ‘tag’ ESG research).


Membership is open to Australian superannuation funds, fund managers and asset consultants.  There is no requirement for ESG RA members to be a UNPRI signatory or RIAA member, but being a member of ESG RA will assist UNPRI signatories to meet their UNPRI responsibilities.
