Rest chief investment officer Andrew Lill is prioritising renewable energy assets as part of the $70 billion super fund’s alignment to Sustainable Development Goals. The fund plans to invest $2 billion in renewables and lower carbon assets by 2025, achieve net-zero emissions from property holdings by 2030, and allocate 1 per cent of funds to impact investments across markets over the next five years. Lill says the fund has adopted a multi-asset approach to “operate and scale” select sustainable investments.

“We invest in listed equity companies that are renewable energy companies,” he tells Investment Magazine. “We’ve also got access to green bonds that are raising financing for renewable energy. We have had in our portfolio exposure to the biggest wind farm in WA, called Collgar, since 2010. “At the same time, we want to make sure that we’re geographically diverse, and also exposed to both the development and operating stages of wind farms.”
