ACSI provides a collective voice on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues on behalf of around 40 asset owners and institutional investors. Collectively, ACSI’s members manage over $2.2 trillion in assets and own on average 10% of every ASX200 company. Over two years, Right Lane helped ACSI develop its new strategic plan. This involved a number of strategy and planning interactions with ACSI’s staff, board and member council. The initial focus was on strategic questions relating to ACSI’s long term aspiration and where to focus its efforts – which membership cohorts, asset classes, geographies and services. We brought to these discussions a perspective on best practices in strategy and planning, including within investment organisations and NGOs. We also helped ACSI think through future scenarios – combinations of headwinds and tailwinds relating to policy and politics, regulation, competition, investing and the public discourse – and their implications for the organisation. The exercise culminated in a strong support from the board and member council for a new mission and vision for ACSI, along with a strategy on a page, and a detailed strategic plan.
