At Bank Australia we are accountable and transparent about our decisions and actions to our customers.
Our Strategic Plan is developed by listening to our customers and understanding their expectations. Each year we then report our performance against our Strategic Plan.
We think about all the things that go into our business and the matters of material importance to our customers, staff and other stakeholders including our impact on the community and environment. We then share all of this information in our Impact Report.
This helps us to:
- manage our business in a way that matches customers’ expectations
- maintain a social license from our customers to operate
- have a reputation as a responsible corporate citizen
- find and keep amazing employees
- attract socially aware customers.
Our Impact Report is guided by the International Integrated Reporting Council's Integrated Reporting Framework and the Global Reporting Initiative. Bank Australia provides statutory accounts data to support our Impact Report, as required by law. A third party also verifies our Impact Report for accuracy using an Australian standard for assurance.
