Creating better futures together
What's most important to us is understanding what a better future means to our customers and helping them get there.
Our 2030 Sustainability Strategy is centred around six objectives
We believe that as one of Australia’s largest companies, we have a role to play in helping to create a positive social, economic and environmental impact. Our Sustainability Strategy is aligned to our Group Strategy and Purpose, and centres upon six objectives we will be seeking to achieve.
Underpinning these are:
- Focus areas: where we aim to continue to improve
- Areas for advocacy: where we aspire to influence and lead positive change.
The end point for our Sustainability Strategy is 2030, aligned with the timeline for the UN Sustainable Development Goals and our net-zero interim sector targets. This also reflects the longer-term nature of what we are seeking to achieve. We aim to report against our 2030 Sustainability Strategy from FY24.
- Safe, flexible and inclusive products and services
- Support customers experiencing vulnerability, hardship and disaster
- Education to build financial resilience
