You can tell a lot about someone from the company they keep.

We engage broadly and seek to learn and share from like minded organisations across the world.

From our beginnings we have operated according to the international cooperative principles.

In more recent years we have become a member of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, and we are a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact - both of which guide our responsible approach to banking.

Bank Australia was the first Australian member of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, a growing network of financial institutions committed to using banking to change the world.

The members of the Global Alliance have combined assets of almost US$80 billion and provide banking to more than 20 million customers in six continents.

The United Nations Global Compact is the largest corporate citizenship and sustainability initiative in the world, with over 12,000 corporate participants from over 145 countries. Being a member gives us the opportunity to network with other organisations in Australia who are faced with and are responding to human rights, labour standards, environmental and anti-corruption issues in our community. Each year we report on our activity under the compact.

We hold the following memberships and affiliations:

  • Global Alliance for Banking on Values
  • United Nations Global Compact
  • Customer Owned Banking Association
  • Australian Banking Association
  • Australian Mutuals Institute
  • Business Council of Cooperatives and Mutuals
