Bank Australia is the bank for people who believe in a fair and just world. We work with our customers to use your money as a force for good. We’re here to benefit you, your communities and our planet.

We’re the first customer owned bank in Australia, meaning we answer to our customers - you - and not external shareholders.

We say our money is clean because it’s never loaned to industries that do harm, like fossil fuels or live animal exports, and all of our loans are subject to our Responsible Banking Policy. Instead, we seek to lend to those having a positive impact, such as individual customers, community renewable energy, and community and disability housing. 

We’re also the first bank in Australia to have its deposit and home lending products certified ‘responsible’ by the Responsible Investment Association of Australasia.
