In line with our policy, Westpac does not make cash donations to political parties.
Westpac does participate in political engagement activities assessed as directly relevant to the bank and/or the banking industry. Such activities include business observer programs attached to annual party conferences, policy dialogue forums and other political engagement activities, such as speeches and events with industry participants. Westpac attends these events to put forward its position on policy matters of importance to our customers, suppliers, shareholders and our employees.
All Westpac political expenditure is publicly reported in our Annual Report.
