“When you look at super and the sheer size of what it can achieve in the world…and the fact that I don’t even have to put aside $1000 because that money is already being put aside for me…I have a resource that I can use that to make the world better.”
For our thirteenth episode, we sit down with Emily Flood, Ethical Investment Analyst at Future Super, Australia’s first fossil-free superannuation fund which invests ethically to create a more sustainable future.
Together we discuss the vast potential for superannuation funds to be used as a force of good, the ethical investment principles of Future Super, grappling with privilege and perfectionism in the social impact space in particular and entering a career pathway beyond your area of study.
