All you people stressing about the future. We’ve got you.
Aurora Capital’s KiwiSaver Scheme is an easy way to influence real, positive change - for your future and future generations.
We believe companies that positively contribute to society and the environment are likely to face fewer risks over the long term and as a result, are more likely to deliver better investment returns. We support the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and we specifically focus on the SDG's that can positively influence the climate and environment.
The way we see things, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) issues can impact a company's profitability and ability to operate in the future. We make sure that the managers we select integrate ESG factors into their investment process. While all ESG is important, we prioritise investment strategies that target a low-carbon economy and can support the transition to a low carbon world.
Our portfolios exclude companies that we believe do more social or environmental harm than good. While exclusion is important in avoiding the most harmful activities, our view is that exclusion alone can't create the change that's needed to improve the climate crisis, as companies need capital to fund the replacement of carbon emitting processes.
We plant native trees
Trees do a sensational job of capturing carbon from the atmosphere. We're supporting a fantastic Kiwi organisation called Trees That Count, which matches native trees with restoration projects across New Zealand. Seeing Kiwis plant more native trees in New Zealand - we're all for it!
Investing for the future, taking climate action today.
Like we always say, change is a journey, and we believe we’re taking steps in the right direction.
That's why our portfolios are low-carbon and we aim to invest for a more sustainable climate and environment.
Supporting projects that help the environment
Trees That Count are doing incredible work across New Zealand, by helping Kiwis plant more native trees. While all trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, nothing compares to native trees in supporting wildlife and improving native biodiversity.
