The Australia Institute and Quit Nukes have assessed the policy and practice of major Australian superannuation funds.

Information is valid as of October 2021. 

The policies adopted by Australian superannuation funds in relation to nuclear weapons producers range from having no explicit exclusion, to mandating the exclusion of all companies that produce nuclear weapons.

Two main factors determine the policy change required for a fund to become nuclear weapons free: where the policy applies (i.e. if the policy applies across the entire fund, or is limited to some investment options), and the degree of exclusion (i.e. how exclusions are defined.)

See detailed analysis of each fund in our 2021 Report.
