Today’s retirees are living much longer than ever before, and it is important that they are able to achieve financial security for a better retirement. 

At Challenger, being sustainable is about addressing issues and embracing opportunities that have the potential to impact the financial security of our customers. Our corporate sustainability strategy supports the delivery of our business strategy and reflects our most material social, environmental and governance opportunities.

Climate change 

Our purpose is to provide customers with financial security for a better retirement and we understand that climate change will disproportionately impact older Australians. We’re determined to ensure what we do as a business supports the wellbeing of older Australians.

At Challenger we’re committed to supporting progress in transitioning to a low-carbon economy.

This includes working with our stakeholders to find ways to reduce risks and create a more resilient economy.

Community partnership

Challenger’s partnership with COTA (Council on the Ageing) New South Wales will deliver a community program aimed at addressing the underemployment of people over 50.

This program will celebrate the value older Australians bring to the workplace and improve workplace practices to attract and retain older employees into their companies.

Our community program encourages employers and employees to engage on this important issue and help develop better ways of working for older Australians.

To find out more about this partnership and progress to date, visit our Community partnership page.

Diversity and inclusion

We encourage a diverse and inclusive workplace that recognises individual differences and perspectives, helping to foster a positive culture as well as contribute to our business’s success.

Human rights

We respect and support internationally recognised human rights as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Fundamental Conventions of the International Labour Organisation1. We expect all our employees (including executives, non-executive directors and contractors of Challenger and its related entities), to comply with our human rights statement and we seek to work with third parties who support our approach and standards.

Demonstrating our commitment to improved human rights, we are a signatory to the Investors Against Slavery and Trafficking Asia-Pacific initiative, to engage on this issue and find better ways of doing business.

To find out more about our approach, read our Human rights statement and Modern slavery statement.

1) These conventions address: freedom of association; collective bargaining; forced labour; minimum age; worst forms of child labour; equal remuneration; and discrimination
