Sustainable Partnerships & Supply Chain

Bank-Australia logo

Bank Australia is the bank for people who believe in a fair and just world. We work with our customers to use their money as a force for good. We are here to benefit both our customer, their communities and the planet. All our products, i.e. loan and deposit offerings, are certified as ‘’responsible’’ by the Responsible Investment Association of Australasia.

We also use the term “clean money’’; we say our money is ‘’clean’’ because we never loan money to industries that do harm, like fossil fuels, gambling, live animal exports, etc. and all of our loans are subject to our Responsible Banking Policy. As a bank we seek to lend to those who have a positive impact, such as individual customers, clean energy transition, as well as community and disability housing.

Notwithstanding the above we also have our Clean Energy Home Loan (CEHL) which offers an incentive for those customers who are buying or building 7 star + (green homes) or who are considering making ambitious green upgrades – eligible customers can receive a discount on their interest rate for up to five years on this product.

Details of our CEHL product are available here.

The current interest rate table, LVR bands and residential loan table are available on our Broker Support website.
