I have had my super with Australian Ethical Investment (AEI) since 2006. They are a truly green fund. They pioneered the ethical positive/negative investment screen in Australia, see Australian Ethical Charter.
Through my work I have got to know them well. In my observations they have a good work ethic, with the high ethical standards but also practical and trying to ensure good returns for customers. If you want to know your funds are being invested in the best possible way, as practically as possible and with historically good performing funds, low and high risk options, AEI are the fund.
I founded People Decide (PD) in 2013 to get participatory democracy into parliament and make a society where people are happier.
You can vote on bills being debated live in parliament through the PD website or mobile app. PD aims to get MPs and Senators elected who have signed a contract that they will vote with the majority of voters on bills in parliament. MPs and Senators only vote with the people when enough people participate and there are deliberative tools to help ensure people understand what they are voting on.
I developed the legal framework, IT structure and step-by-step plan with input from experts, past attempts and examples from around the world to make it work practically and the best possible chance of success in an Australian context. The PD team has reviewed this and is developing the IT system.
