The journey to Responsible Investing


Responsible Investing (RI) is one of the fastest growing areas of investment in Australia as people are asking tough questions about the investment connection to environmental and social challenges such as climate change and modern slavery. It’s no surprise there’s mounting pressure for investors to deliver investment solutions that not only meet investment objectives, but also deliver solutions to sustainability challenges. 

Integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors in your investments can be tricky, but a focus on how ESG factors impact investment risk and returns means contributing to better outcomes for people and the environment which we all depend on. Our award-winning global team of experts are here to help you navigate your pathway to Responsible Investing. 



The time to act is now


"Responding to climate change is an imperative and an opportunity and what’s really exciting is how many institutions are embracing the need for change."

Incorporating Responsible Investing in your portfolio, how Mercer can help

We think success is about seizing the opportunities that arise from change. Evidence shows that Responsible Investment helps build resilience against diverse risks in your investment portfolio, and this approach is more likely to create and preserve long-term investment capital. Integrating ESG considerations into your investment process is just good governance, which helps build a more holistic and accurate picture of risk and return impacts for today and tomorrow.

Global insights with local expertise

We believe Responsible Investment should be at the heart of the investment process. Mercer has been at the forefront of Responsible Investing since forming a global investment advisory team of RI specialists in 2004. Our award-winning team operates globally in all major market hubs, and is solely focused in the area of RI. 

In developing a Responsible Investment strategy, it’s important to understand that it’s not all or nothing. You don’t just want to let the loudest voices dictate your approach, or lock you into unrealistic expectations. Our team will work with you to establish a tailored approach that reflects your identity and purpose as an organisation, and then implement that strategy purpose-built for you through a comprehensive investment and monitoring approach.

The end goal is to deliver an end-to-end Responsible Investment solution that not only meets fiduciary objectives but aligns with organisational values to win the trust of members, customers and stakeholders.

No matter where you are in your journey, let us help you make the transition to Responsible Investing easier.
