Social Media Collaborative Engagement

After the 2019 Christchurch terrorist attack the New Zealand Crown-owned investors joined together to lead a global investment collaboration to engage with the world’s three leading social media companies: Facebook, Alphabet (YouTube) and Twitter.

The objective of the engagement is for these social media companies to strengthen controls to prevent the live streaming and distribution of objectionable content.

The collaboration supports the Christchurch Call, a joint initiative by the governments of New Zealand and France. The engagement also seeks to hold the companies accountable to the commitments made via The Call.

As it stands the group consists of 95 financial institutions from around the world. Currently, the team leading the engagement are focused on gathering domestic and international support for the initiative and bringing other major investors on board, as well as planning the details of the engagement.

To formally join, please email NZ Super Fund at [email protected] with:

  2. The organisation’s total assets under management. Please note that this will be kept confidential and is only used for aggregation purposes.
