Portfolio carbon footprint

Giving our customers clear and relevant carbon intensity information to help them to make informed decisions.

Our approach

We believe in giving our customers clear and relevant information to help them make informed decisions. We are committed to measuring and reporting the carbon intensity of investment options within our retail and corporate superannuation funds, making sure our customers are fully informed at all times.

In keeping with our commitments, BTFG is a signatory to the PRI’s Montreal Carbon Pledge.

The carbon footprint of the below portfolios is a measurement of the Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emission intensity, based on their exposure to Australian and International equities as at 30 June 2016.

For each company, carbon intensity is measured as tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2e) per million Australian dollars of revenue.

Please note that BTFG does not actively manage to a carbon benchmark; the analysis is used to understand where risks may lie within the portfolio, and provide our customers with information on the investments they hold.

A negative variance against benchmark means the individual product/investment option is less emissions intensive as compared to its benchmark.

Detailed information is available in the 2016 Portfolio Carbon Disclosure table and 2016 Portfolio Carbon Disclosure spreadsheet (XLSX 70KB).
