About this event

With action on climate change well recognised as critical, the finance industry is now in the spotlight for its role in supporting or impeding the transition.

UniSuper is the superannuation fund that represents Australia’s tertiary sector. It has performed extremely well for its members, has a developed climate strategy, and offers sustainable options. It recently announced it has divested from two ‘pure-play’ coal firms. Yet it still faces calls to go further by fully divesting from fossil fuel companies, especially as the scientific community constitutes many of its members.

In this online forum we will attempt to understand the decision making process that UniSuper engages in to make its decisions on climate risk and fossil fuel investments.

To help you decide whether UniSuper and the finance industry are doing enough on this issue, our host Ali Moore will be joined by a stellar panel of experts to unpack the issues, including legal requirements to members and the economic prospects of the fossil fuel industry, as well as the broader movements in the finance industry on the climate change issue.

The panel will discuss for about 40mins after which they will address questions from the audience. Questions may be posed through the chat function on Zoom at any time throughout the forum.
