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.
Right Lane places high importance on our sustainable procurement objectives.
We have held B Corp certification since 2015; we have publicly committed to reaching ‘Net Zero by 2030’ by taking the TAKE 2 pledge – the State Governments collective climate change program supporting individuals, government, business and other organisations to help our state achieve net zero emissions by 2050; and our printing is sourced through a local business who has Sustainable Green Print (SGP) certification.
