Cruelty FreeSuper is Australia’s only vegan super fund. It’s easy to join and takes only a few minutes online.
We do not invest our member's savings in any companies that profit from the exploitation and harm of animals and people. This means excluding companies who test on animals, make or sell animal products, export live animals, or breed animals for food or products.
We also don’t invest in a range of other harmful industries, including detention centres and fossil fuels. Instead, we look for positive investments such as renewable energy, cruelty free healthcare, and innovative technologies.
We rule out companies engaged in the following activities, and more.
We look for companies who are making a positive impact in the world.

Here are some important documents you should read
You should read the PDS and Additional Information Booklet before making any financial decisions regarding the Cruelty Free Super super fund.
Our Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) tells you everything you need to know about your super fund in a standardised format. Every super fund must create a PDS following the government’s guidelines. If you’re trying to compare Cruelty Super to your current fund, this is what you want to read.
