Nationals Senator Matt Canavan says health super fund HESTA’s recent letter to ASX 300 companies demanding they take action on climate change is a pattern of behaviour being seen “across the corporate sector”.

“Where the corporate state, if you like, is trying to become the entire state,” Mr Canavan told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“Do you reckon our health system is going that well that the health superfund can spend their time trying to change the temperature of the globe – or perhaps they should look a little bit more closer to home.

Disgusting if I had super with HESTA I would move. Will be checking the others. How dare they put their ideologies before investors returns. It is not their money

How to take action on climate change (not that it's real): Turn on nuclear. Problem solved.

I think Hesta members should have a say whether they want their superfunds invested in those things. It is their money. They can risk it on a potential failure

OMGTheMess Aren’t Hesta failing in their fiduciary duty if they don’t try to maximise returns? Can’t they be prosecuted?

mattjcan Is telling business what they have to do defeats the principals of small government? What ever happened to the free market? Conservatives now want to control it because they no longer agree with them.

You mean the free market has moved? Why do conservatives hate the free market?

People have been talking about this sort of thing for years. Welcome to the present Matt. Now for the future.


OMGTheMess Industry fund doing away with industry. Good job 🤡🌏
