Make sure that you aren't inadvertently funding animal testing with your KiwiSaver!

The main KiwiSaver plans invest in some of the biggest animal testing companies in the world, including Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, L'Oreal, Procter & Gamble, and Unilever.

According to the Mindful Money Annual Survey, 85% of Kiwis think it’s important not to invest in animal testing.1 Yet over $2.5 billion dollars of KiwiSaver funds are invested in companies that test their products on animals for non-pharmaceutical use.2


1. You can easily check what your KiwiSaver is invested in via the Mindful Money website.

2. Make the ethical KiwiSaver switch!

The KiwiSaver fund with the best policy excluding animal testing is Pathfinder.


Pathfinder is an award-winning ethical KiwiSaver plan that strives to avoid companies and/or industries causing environmental or social harm, including cruelty to animals, factory farming, or other forms of animal exploitation.

Pathfinder aims to avoid investing in any company involved in animal testing. This includes companies that test for consumer products (i.e., cosmetics) and pharmaceutical purposes. Find out more here.


Our favourite KiwiSaver plan is Pathfinder (due to how strict their animal testing policy is) and it's really easy to switch your KiwiSaver plan to Pathfinder:

1. Go to the Pathfinder website to read more

2. Fill out the form. You will need your IRD number as well as a passport or driving license.
