Responsible investing

Investment risk is reduced by improved social, environmental and governance (ESG) performance. For example, poor ESG performance in an investment can indicate poor corporate management and may lead to a decline in investment value.

We use multiple investment governance practices, including:

  • casting proxy votes in Australian and international companies in which we invest
  • publicly communicating our ESG policy and practices
  • governance research and engagement through Regnan, which provides governance research and engagement services to CSC and its other institutional investors.

CSC is also a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment, which provides a framework for institutional investors to align investment activities with the broader interests of society while maximising long-term returns for their beneficiaries.
