Local Government Super (LGS) has been named Australia’s Best Green Super Fund for the sixth time at Money Magazine’s Best of the Best 2018 awards.

“We’re delighted to receive Money Magazine’s Best Green Super Fund award once again,” LGS chief executive David Smith said.

“This award recognises the way we actively invest in a wide range of sustainable activities, as well as our management of environmental, social and governance risks across our investment portfolio.

“LGS currently has just under $1 billion in low-carbon investments. We’re investing in a number of long-term growth sectors and actively seeking out investments that have a positive social or environment impact on the wider community. These include renewable energy generation, clean technology, recycling, and sustainable agriculture.”

The organisation has also seen achievements in the built environment space, gaining an average NABERS rating of 6 stars (with Green Power) and a 5 star Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark rating.
