A Sustainable Business Award win for Generate & Community Finance!

Posted by Generate Contributor in Investing News & Insights, Kiwisaver, Our Team, Responsible Investing on



We’re proud to have won the Outstanding Collaboration Award at the 2021 Sustainable Business Awards, along with our partner, Community Finance!

The Best Collaboration award was for our part in The Aotearoa Pledge – a bold vision to raise and invest $100 million in 2021, to tackle New Zealand’s housing shortage. The Aotearoa Pledge saw investors from a wide range of sectors come together to help deliver affordable homes, financed by the private sector.

Last year Generate became the first KiwiSaver scheme to invest in social housing via a $21m investment into Salvation Army community bonds, which helped build 118 new warm, dry, affordable community houses across three locations.

Responsible investment is one of our core values at Generate, and we know these are hugely important to our members too. Our partnership with Community Finance is just one of the ways we are using our investing power to create positive change in the community, while still delivering great returns for our members.

Congratulations to our partners, Community Finance for also winning the Supreme Award – the top award of the night, presented to the organisation performing outstandingly well in all aspects of sustainability.
