This is the 18th annual Responsible Investment Benchmark Report Australia prepared by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA). The report details industry data on the size, growth, depth and performance of the Australian responsible investment (RI) market over the 12 months to 31 December 2018 and compares these results with the broader Australian financial market.
Through this report, RIAA aims to support the ongoing growth of the responsible investment market consistent with our objective of broadening the uptake of RI while increasing the positive impact of investments on society and our environment. By providing clear and transparent data on the development of the market and the implementation of RI strategies, RIAA aims to support more investors undertaking a responsible approach to investment. Furthermore, by identifying the key drivers of increased RI assets under management (AUM) and the barriers to uptake, RIAA works to increase the adoption and quality of RI strategies.
