Carbon neutral super hero
Through the Qantas Future Planet partnership, TEM has supported HESTA in becoming the first carbon neutral Australian super fund.
TEM is delivering project due diligence, offset procurement and retirement services across HESTA’s portfolio of projects that includes Indigenous fire management in WA, native forest regeneration in NSW and tree planting projects in catchments of the Great Barrier Reef.
HESTA has been measuring its carbon emissions since 2011 and has implemented numerous measures to reduce its footprint, including hybrid vehicles, waste separation, the use of technology, intelligent design of its offices and employee education. HESTA is certified carbon neutral by the Australian Government’s Climate Active program.
At the forefront of the push for a low carbon future, HESTA is a member of the Investor Group on Climate Change and the Climate Action 100+ which push for improved climate change policy and action from governments and organisations around the globe.
“We want to lead through action, we’re doing this by focusing on the broader impact we can have on the world our members live in and retire into by aligning our investments and actions with seven strategic UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including climate change.”
