The National Retail Association (NRA) has welcomed market leading super fund, Active Super, to its partnership network.

The NRA considers Active Super’s investment philosophy, particularly surrounding the environment and education for women’s inequality in superannuation, a key priority. The NRA aligns its values closely with Active Super, which is one of five super fund providers in Australia to be certified carbon neutral through Carbon Active.

Through its partnership, the NRA and Active Super will work together to promote ethical, social and corporate governance alongside the superannuation basics retail employees may not be across.

NRA CEO Dominique Lamb said that retail members would have access to educational materials from the market leading fund, co-designed by the NRA.

“Retail is the largest employer of youth in Australia, and the biggest employer of women and young people. There is a real need to equip retailers, and their employees, with the tools they need to stay financially secure but also in a way that contributes to the betterment of the world,” she said.

“With this partnership, we aim to secure the futures of our workers through a variety of tactics. We’re aiming to address the inequality in women’s superannuation funds, as well as continue our exemplary work on sustainability.”

Active Super chief digital and marketing officer, Chantal Walker said, “Active Super is delighted to partner with the NRA as we share common goals and aspirations for our members. We are both progressive and digital-focused organisations, actively working to support our members, local businesses and the community to help them live their best lives.”

Over 40,000 NRA member shopfronts can look forward to educational materials being rolled out across it’s e-learning and member portal platforms in the coming months.
