Sustainability is integrated throughout our business and embedded in our policies, procedures and practices. Strong governance and ethics are the fundamental foundations to our sound business practices and ensure that as a business we are here for the long-term.
We put you first. Making our members happy is our number one goal. As a mutual bank, our members are our shareholders.
Therefore it is imperative that we engage with our members, ensure member inclusion and aim to achieve the highest level of member satisfaction and member value that we can.
We are passionate about education, so we invest in a diverse range of activities for teachers, and our communities, to help them flourish.
We believe our employees are our most valuable resource and strive to create an engaged workforce by having fair and equitable policies in place that enhance the working environment. Recognising and respecting the rights of our employees is a fundamental part of our work ethic.
As a financial services organisation with a remote service model and mainly online bank, our direct environmental impacts are relatively low in relation to other sectors. However, we believe we still have a responsibility to use resources wisely in order not to affect the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Our Teachers Environment Fund was launched in March 2008 to assist public schools and TAFE/CITs to enhance their sustainability. Since then we have provided $312,000 of funds to over 100 projects. This is your school's chance to receive a grant, up to $2,000 and bring an eco-project to life.Past recipients have used the grants to plant sustainable gardens, hold an ECO day, build indigenous creeks and worm farms. They provide a great opportunity for teachers to embed sustainability into their students thinking as well as have some fun along the way.
