At Teachers Mutual Bank we believe it is teachers who make communities stronger and futures brighter.
We are a purpose-driven bank, ensuring that our profits do good in the world.
We lead by example and are committed to being a responsible business, as we believe it’s the way business should be run, and that it should be driven by ethics.
Sustainability isn’t just part of our business, it’s how we do business. We believe sustainability should influence every aspect of our planning, programming and implementation. We are committed to creating a better world for our members, the teaching community, the planet and the people on it.
Sustainability is one of three core business values. We have three sustainability priority areas – Being a responsible business, Investing in the teaching community and Creating a better tomorrow.
Early 2014 we were named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies Globally, we are one of only three Australian organisations to be named and one of only five banks. We are honoured to be recognised at such a level, and proud to raise the bar on ethical leadership and corporate behaviour.
"We believe sustainability is about the whole bank. It is embedded in who we are as a bank, what we do and why we do it."
“To Teachers Mutual Bank, being sustainable is in fact our core purpose, it’s not an add-on or a fashionable extra we have discovered. It’s how we define success as a business. In fact sustainability is the natural way to describe mutuality. We believe sustainability is about the whole bank. It is embedded in who we are as a bank, what we do and why we do it’ - Steve James CEO, Teachers Mutual Bank.
We know how important this is to teachers, as it reflects their values and ethics. Sustainability and being a responsible business consistently ranks highly in their criteria for satisfaction and is what they want to see from us and businesses in general – being authentic, consistent and honest in our purpose.
95% of Teachers Mutual Bank members think Sustainability should be ‘important’, and 61% stated that Sustainability should be ‘very important’ to Teachers Mutual Bank.
