Corporate Social Responsibility

Attention: open in a new window. Print

We are committed to demonstrating strong social and environmental responsibilities amongst our Members, staff and the wider community.

To do this we are focused on:

  • Raising awareness of our social and environmental responsibility among staff, Members, leadership, suppliers and the wider community.
  • Ensuring that as we support our Members in the achievement of financial wellness, the services we provide do not have harmful social or environmental costs.
  • Adopting policies and programs that address specific areas of our social and environmental responsibilities and consider the needs of our stakeholder groups including Members, Employees, Community, Environment and Suppliers.
  • Maintaining transparency in all that we do.
