ANZ provides a range of banking and financial products and services to around 10 million customers globally and employs over 50,000 people worldwide with Australia being its largest market. With a strong record in corporate sustainability, ANZ is committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and has been reporting against a sustainability framework and public targets for over a decade. ANZ is a Gold Community member of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI); a signatory to the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) Statement on fiduciary duty and climate change disclosure; and participates in the Portfolio Carbon Initiative led by the UNEP Finance Initiative and World Resources Institute (WRI), forming an Australian Working Group with other major banks to enable measuring and disclosure of climate performance.
To support the transition to a net-zero emissions economy, ANZ has established a 5 year, $10 billion low carbon and sustainable solutions fund (including renewable energy generation, green buildings, low-emissions manufacturing and transport), and is increasingly active in the green bonds market. ANZ has maintained carbon neutrality consistent with the Australian Government’s Climate Active program.
