Ethical banking and creating more good.

Ethical Banking

In an era where ethical banking is slowly becoming understood, you might be wondering if your bank's investments and activities match your principles?  

With talk on climate change becoming more urgent, you're probably thinking about what you can do to make the future a little brighter.

Creating positive impact.

The good news is that ethical banking institutions strive to do business according to their beliefs and without causing harm. They operate in a way that creates a positive impact on people and the planet.

At Beyond Bank, we're committed to using our business as a force for good by balancing profit and purpose. And we're proud to be Australia's first B Corp certified bank.

Becoming a B Corp—a growing global movement—allows us to measure our impact across five stakeholder groups: our people, customers, community, environment and governance. We are part of a growing global movement that aims to redefine what success in business looks like. Plus, we've signed up to SDG (sustainable development goals) Action Manager, a global call to action to transform our world.

But what does this mean? You still want your money to perform well, right? Don't worry. We're committed to being in a position of financial strength and diversified growth, responsive and agile, focussed on the financial well-being of our customers across all stages of their lives.

Customer-owned, community-focused.

Being a customer-owned bank, we work hard to understand your needs and expectations. We are transparent about our purpose, ethics, practices and policies. We reinvest our profits back into the business to benefit you by delivering better products and services.

We're focussed on the accessibility of our branches, providing responsible lending, exploring sustainable finance solutions and developing financial wellbeing initiatives.

We are taking action against climate change with steps to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and improve waste management.

Affordable housing, aged support, financial well-being and disability support are significant challenges in modern society. As a financial institution, we are in a position to make a profound and genuine impact.

Helping communities to prosper.

We also back local causes and grass-root clubs and help them to prosper. We're addressing modern slavery through our procurement chains, stepping up to assist communities during disasters, and providing Covid-19 support to customers who need it.

Our people are at the centre of everything we do. We are committed to their financial security, wellness and flexible working arrangements. It's part of our workplace culture.

We actively support community organisations through paid staff volunteering. It's another we give back to organisations that provide valuable community services. Staff are the lifeblood of our business. They are at the heart of our success, so they need to form real community connections. Volunteering is a crucial part of developing our organisational culture.

Meeting your expectations.

This is how we operate and what our customers expect from us. It's what ethical banking means to us, and it's all part of being for and with our customers and their communities. Read more in our 2021 Corporate Report.
