Environmental sustainability

We are supporting households, businesses and financial practices to improve environmental sustainability.

In addition to supporting our customers, we're seeking to reduce the environmental impact of our own operations. We are focused on increasing our use of renewable electricity and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, waste, paper and water usage.


How we're taking action

Environmental Sustainability Strategy

Our Environmental Sustainability Strategy identifies focus areas, technologies and financing opportunities to help achieve our climate ambition. This includes through partnerships, such as the one announced in early 2022, with climate advisory and investment firm Pollination.

Financing Sustainability

We’ve set a target to fund and facilitate at least A$100 billion by the end of 2030 towards improving social and environmental outcomes for our customers. This includes initiatives that help lower carbon emissions, protect nature and biodiversity, increase access to affordable housing and promote financial wellbeing.

Reducing our own footprint

We've developed a suite of targets to reduce the impact of our business activities on the environment.
