- Super funds are measured against eight requirements.
- If a super fund meets six of the eight criteria, it is deemed to be an ethical super fund.
- If there is no publicly available information for a super fund, it would fail all eight criteria and therefore would not be considered an ethical super fund.
- There are over 500 super fund options available in the market.
- Many of the larger super funds have multiple investment options within them taking the total number of super fund products well into the 1000s.
- For funds that offer multiple products, we first look for an ethical/sustainable/green option.
- If such an option isn’t available, we look for the default/popular option.
- We will continue to build our database of super fund products with the goals being to include all super fund products.
Sources of information
- All information is sourced from publicly available information on the super fund’s website.
- We will add supplementary information provided directly by a super fund.
- We don’t ask for/request/solicit information from any super fund.
