Creating a climate action portfolio can be both challenging and rewarding.

Often, climate conscious investors have ethical concerns about being invested in so-called “dirty stocks", but your investments, no matter the size, can have real and positive impact.

Are you a financial advisor?

More and more people are wishing to invest their money in meaningful and ethical ways. Financial advisors can be a link between their clients and ACCR, by providing them with the means to exercise their shareholder rights.

Would you like to support our work in other ways?

If you are not in a position to hold shares, you can still become a part of our supporter community. Sign up for updates about our work and other opportunities to be involved. We are always looking for new people and pathways to create change.

ACCR relies on grants and donations to fund our work.

ACCR produces essential, award-winning research on corporate and investment sector performance across environmental, social and governance issues. If you would like to support this and our work to hold ASX listed companies to account, you may wish to make a donation.

Participating in shareholder resolutions is one of the most powerful ways I can influence business to act on climate and justice issues. ACCR makes it easy and understandable to use my shares for good, and they amplify my impact in the media and in big investors' boardrooms. It's incredibly powerful and rewarding.

Marie Carvolth

It's a great way to be involved. It makes a small amount of capital that you may have, make a difference.

Pam O'Connor

ACCR was named runner-up for the Best Sustainability Consultancy at the 2024 ESG Investing Awards in London. \ Now in their fifth year, The ESG Investing Awards are judged by an independent panel of experts and celebrate the best ESG offerings from vendors and investors that are making a positive contribution towards the integrity, uptake and success of ESG investing.

ACCR’s research output is impressive in quantity and quality and highly topical. Their advocacy allows companies to feel the heat and the need to transform. They engage wherever possible to push for honest emission disclosures and reductions, but if needed are not shy about using shareholder power to point out the obfuscation and lack of clear pathway to net zero of a company.

Dr Helen Redmond

ACCR’s expertise in strategy, communication and execution has lifted shareholder engagement to a new level, and empowered small scale investors to raise their collective voice for the greater good.

Trevor Thomas

Managing Director, Ethinvest

Resolutions are a proven, effective way for investors who care about changing corporate behaviour to have a positive impact on the world around us. For this reason Tas Ethical and our clients have been proud, active supporters of the ACCR’s shareholder resolutions and will continue to be in the future. If you wish to use your money to drive positive change in Australia , I strongly recommend engaging with the ACCR.

Shareholder action & lobbying super funds is very effective at pushing corporations on big issues like climate change & social responsibility. Get involved with ACCR to help make a difference. My ASX shares help support AGM resolutions to effect positive change.

Sue Baker

In a time of climate chaos and great uncertainty ACCR’s climate program is a powerful advocacy mechanism to engage with ASX listed companies to minimise risk and give investors certainty, towards just development and climate justice.

Professor Anne Poelina

Chair, Martuwarra Fitzroy River Council (MFRC)

The coalition was formed in January 2022 by ACCR and included Man Group, HSBC Global Asset Management and Amundi. They were the first institutional investors to file a climate resolution in Japan calling for more ambitious action by J-Power. Man Group told Environmental Finance it was delighted to receive this award on behalf of the co-filing group. This recognises the significance of these pioneering climate shareholder resolutions by institutional investors in Japan.

We’ve worked with ACCR for several years now and this has substantially increased our capacity to engage and escalate with key investment positions in our portfolio. ACCR's research, filing capability and focus on emissions reduction has supported our efforts to protect shareholder value as the globe shifts away from fossil fuels.

Jason Mitchell

Head of Responsible Investment Research, Man Group

I like the idea of shareholder activism and working to change things from the inside. My super is all invested responsibly but outside of my super I continue to hold shares in companies that I otherwise wouldn't touch with a barge pole in the hopes that I can help exert some positive influence in combination with others. To be honest, I'm not optimistic for the future of our planet, or at least many of the species that currently live on it, but I still feel it's incredibly important to keep trying.
