Perennial Smaller Companies Sustainable Future Trust Certified by RIAA’s Responsible Investment Certification Program
The Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) has added the Perennial Smaller Companies Sustainable Future Trust to their Responsible Returns website after passing its rigorous certification process.
The Responsible Investment Certification Program is the leading initiative for distinguishing quality responsible, ethical and impact investment products in Australia and New Zealand. The Certification Symbol signifies that the product has implemented an investment style and process that systematically takes into account environmental, social, governance or ethical considerations and this process reliability has been verified by an external party.

As part of this process, RIAA assessed the Sustainable Future Trust’s operational and disclosure requirements, publicly available data, investment process, ESG integration, exclusions, positive screens and returns.
