Poster summary

The Australian housing market is severely unaffordable. The social housing sector in Australia struggles to finance private investments to meet the rising demand for affordable houses. Increasing Socially Responsible Impact (SRI) investors are an excellent source of finance for the affordable housing sector. However, housing associations and relevant government institutions have not paid sufficient attention to the SRI investors as a source of housing finance. SRI investors consider the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performances in their investment process. Therefore, I evaluate the Australian social housing sector’s ability to attract SRI investors.
