Live animal export

Live animal export

We do not invest in live animal exporters or in companies involved in the live animal export trade.

We believe that live animal export is a cruel and unnecessary way of operating, and many of our members feel the same way.

Most Australian super funds invest in the live animal export trade. In December 2015, Australia’s largest live animal export company, Wellard Group, listed on the Australian stock exchange and already appears in the portfolios of many super funds. They transport over 400,000 live animals every year, and operate ships that carry up to 75,000 animals at a time.

We say "NO" to Wellard Group. We also say no to other companies involved in the live animal export trade including: 

  • Australian Agricultural Company
  • Elders Ltd
  • Qube logistics
