Our sustainability framework supports our business strategy, reflects our most material issues and is aligned with our purpose. In 2018 we refreshed our framework.
At the core of our framework is fair and responsible banking – keeping pace with the expectations of our customers, employees and the community, behaving fairly and responsibly and maintaining high standards of conduct.
Our three priority areas are:
- Environmental sustainability – supporting household, business and financial practices that improve environmental sustainability.
- Housing – improving the availability of suitable and affordable housing options for all Australians and New Zealanders.
- Financial wellbeing – improving the financial wellbeing of our customers, employees and the community by helping them make the most of their money throughout their lives.
ANZ is committed to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and our sustainability framework, together with public sustainability targets that we set annually, support their achievement.
