Local Government Super

Responsibly invested super

We believe that responsible investment choices lead to a brighter future for everyone. For us, that means taking a sustainable approach, examining the environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks of every company we invest in.

Super that performs

Investing responsibly doesn’t have to mean compromising on returns. Research shows that core responsible investment funds are seeing higher returns than other kinds of investments.* At LGS, everything we do is evaluated for both sustainability and performance.
