Bank Australia's policy

We work hard to ensure these investments are consistent with our values wherever we can, and we are an investor in green, social and sustainability bonds in Australia. Each year in our Impact Report, we disclose what share of our liquidity portfolio is in green, social and sustainability bonds as well as the types of projects these investments finance, like light rail and transport, wind and solar farms, and low carbon buildings.
