At Equip we believe in Responsible Investment. While our objective is to maximise the retirement income of our members, we recognise that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues are factors which may influence whether this objective is met.

The integration of ESG issues and the application of Responsible Investment (RI) practices into the management of our investment portfolios is consistent with our overall investment beliefs. We believe this approach will enhance the risk adjusted returns for our members over the long term.

The documents below outline our commitment and approach to Responsible Investment and its practical application.
