2015–16 Sustainability Report

CalSTRS 2015–16 Sustainability Report
Global Stewardship at Work


CalSTRS third annual CalSTRS 2015–16 Sustainability Report: Global Stewardship at Work documents CalSTRS’ sustainability performance for the 2015–16 fiscal year and supports our long-term viability as a sustainable organization. The report was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative’s G4 framework.

Sustainability reporting can help organizations to measure, understand and communicate their economic, environmental, social and governance performance more effectively.

The annual report includes a number of required GRI report “standard” disclosures, but primarily consists of material issue content, which is derived from a biennial materiality survey sent to members, employees and other stakeholders for their input.

This year, our stakeholders selected six topics which we thoroughly address in the report:

  • Cybersecurity
  • Ethics and Compliance
  • Organizational Transparency
  • Retirement Preparedness
  • Sustainability-Related Risk Management
  • Workforce Development, Employee Diversity/Inclusion and Employee Engagement

The title and theme of the third annual report reflects CalSTRS’ global stewardship and our commitment to sustainability “at work” to provide the retirement service needs for our members and beneficiaries – in perpetuity.
