The Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) is the peak industry body representing responsible, ethical and impact investors across Australia and New Zealand.
RIAA has an active network of over 240 members who manage more than $9 trillion in assets globally, including super funds, fund managers, consultants, researchers, brokers, impact investors, property managers, community banks, community trusts, faith-based groups, financial advisers and individuals.
RIAA's goal is to see more capital being invested more responsibly; shifting more capital into sustainable assets and enterprises and shaping responsible financial markets to underpin strong investment returns and deliver a healthier economy, society and environment.
RIAA does this through:
1. Acting as the member hub of timely and relevant ESG, ethical and impact investing information to strengthen the capacity of the finance and investment industries - through regular events, webinars, conference calls and working groups, as well as industry research; and
2. Growing the awareness and demand for responsible investments through communications and marketing work, media activity, as well as by operating the world's first and longest running fund Certification Program, and the consumer portal Responsible Returns.
