Great Southern Bank is Australia’s largest customer-owned bank, established in 1946 and today looking after the financial and insurance needs of over 420,000 Australians.
Social purpose has been at the core of who we are for 75 years. Being a sustainable and responsible bank is underpinned by our commitment to doing business in a way that benefits customers and communities today and into the future.
We are a proud signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. Our environment, social and governance (ESG) focus supports the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and aligns with our purpose to help all Australians own their own home.
We are firmly focused on meaningful and lasting environmental and social impact. This includes reducing our environmental footprint and emissions as a bank. We are proud to have achieved Climate Active certification for becoming carbon neutral.
Our commitment to sustainability also means helping people that may not otherwise be able to achieve financial security and move onto the property ladder.
