Align your banking with your values 

Do you make choices to create positive change, like switching to clean energy, buying organic food or reducing plastic waste?

Did you know your choice of bank can have a huge impact on the world? 

This is because the money you put in your account is used by banks to make loans and investments. The types of loans banks make can go to industries that do good or those that do harm. So where your money goes ultimately shapes the world we all live in.

What we don't invest in 

At Bank Australia we say our money is clean because it is never loaned to those industries that do harm.

We don't lend to these industries:
 

 > Fossil Fuels 
 > Live animal export
 > Gambling
 > Arms industry
 > Tobacco

What we do invest in 

We also use money to help create positive impact for people, their communities and the planet.

We do this by lending money to:

 > Individual customers 
 > Housing for people with disability
 > Better housing developments
 > Renewable energy projects
 > Not-for-profit organisations

Do you
know 
what
your bank 
does with 
your money?

 

Ask your bank or go discover for yourself. There are many independent not-for-profit organisations that track who banks lend their money to. 

Okay I'm in, how do I join? 

Join over 140,000 Australians whose money is making a positive difference to the lives of people and the planet. It only takes five minutes to join us, all you need is your drivers licence or passport, and a Medicare card.
