Australia's Future and the Power of the Super Fund
Future Super is an ingenious solution to one of Australia's biggest challenges of the 21st century: How are we going to deconstruct our fossil fuel economy, and fund a new renewables technology economy?
There's literally $3.3 trillion in Australia's super funds, and just 10% of this amount would allow us to set up renewables infrastructure that gives us the ability to meet our electricity needs with only renewables. By putting your super towards renewables you're not only investing in an essential service that will continue to pay dividends to...you, you're taking the money in your current super fund away from fossil fuel companies. Sounds like a win/win to me. Switching your super is the single biggest impact you can make in reducing your carbon footprint. More than metal straws. More than being vegan. By an order of magnitude. And to top it all off Future Super is on par and even beats the other super funds in returns. It's a no brainer.
It is imperative that we start investing in renewables in any way we can
Not only does it outearn fossil fuel-based superannuation but it helps the environment and the economy at large. Would recommend to any working australian, simple to do, set up within 20 mins
Great experience, powerful and effective way to reduce emissions
I have just joined this super fund. I read through the product disclosure statement and the climate impact report and was thoroughly impressed by the transparency of the company, and the potential to reduce carbon emissions. Here are some facts:
1. 31% of the average Australian’s carbon footprint comes from the footprint due to their investments
2. Switching your super into Future Super (or a similar fund) is over 2 times more effective than living without a car
3. Switching to Future Super from a fund without ethical screens could reduce an...individual’s carbon footprint by up to ~5.9 tCO2e per year (approx. 25% of each person’s carbon output) 4. If all $3 trillion of Australia’s super was invested with equivalent ethical screens to those used by Future Super, the world would be halfway to the carbon reduction needed to meet the Paris Agreement target of warming less than 1.5-2 degrees (1-2bn tC02e per year) **for context, 2.6b tCO2e was avoided around the world during 2020 due to the COVID-19 lockdowns If you’re wondering about performance of this super fund, you might be comforted to know that the three year growth of the Renewables Plus Growth plan has been 9.53% over the past 3 years.
Yes! Despite the amount of repetitive ads I get about them online, they are VERY good. Super friendly and approachable and an amazing cause! An effortless way to improve the world :)
Makes Superannuation super
I am very happy with Super Future. They are an ethical company. Joining the company was much easier than others. I haven't been with them that long to know if they perform well.
Doing god's work
A super fund that does the right thing AND stays competitive? Couldn't be better. Been with em for six months now and they made the switch super easy. Invest in what's right.
Haha renewables go brrrr!
Woo! Praise the power of THE SUN! Coal has no future, it's best to switch to renewables and make some of that sweet dosh while circumventing the complete annihilation of all life on Earth.
Friendly Jordies said to so I did stooge! We are gonna out do the governments damage and get those renewables in! If you like green? Go greener than you ever have before
These guys are doing incredible work and should be supported and encouraged. They invest in long term improvements and they invest in the future of the planet. I can not recommend them more
I really love how Future Super divests from fossil fuels and invests in renewable energies! It was also super easy to sign up to and redirect my incomes that were going to 2 other supers.
Ethical super fund with good values!
Future super is awesome! Their ethical values won we over when switching from rest. Would definitely make the switch if you’re passionate about the divestment of fossil fuels and other planet and people harming industries!
Future Super Future for all of us!
2016 i joined when it was still brand new because i was desperate to stop giving fossil fuel companies with investing power of my super. My super has grown more in Future Super than with my old fund, and i love being able to log in and see exactly where my super is being invested. As well knowing my super is leading the way in social justice issues, diversity and respect. so proud to be part of Future Super.
It let's me address my guilt without having to personally change anything day-to-day.
I joined a few months ago, I am not sure how I am directly helping our planet yet.
What I do know is that I am no longer funding dead technology that harms our planet.
That I am thankful for, thank you Future Super!
Super of the future
I have been with this super fund for 4ish years now, performance pre, post and during COVID was great and they are trying to invest my money ethically which I like.
Great concept BUT after 1.5 years had no earnings.
Unfortunately, this ethical Super aggregates NO interests as other FUNDS. I've been a member of this for the last 1.5 years and had earn NO interests besides my employer contributions.
Questions & Answers
How much am I required to deposit to Open a new super account?
how much are the fees annually?
I am with Australian Super (I had to set up a quick super account when i emigrated from the UK 6 years ago), and would like to move to something better like Future Super to stick it to the libs coalition. My Aus Super thing does provide some insurance cver.
Does your thing do this?
I do have a separate cover with 'Clearview' that covers me there also, so maybe I don't need it twice.
Where can I get advice?
Just call them. Theyre very helpful.
Awesome to see you wanting to make the switch!
