Our purpose is to shape a world where people and communities thrive. That is why we strive to create a balanced, sustainable economy in which everyone can take part and build a better life.
From our earliest days in the 1830s, financing commerce and facilitating trade, our focus has always been on unlocking opportunity for individuals, families, businesses and communities. With fast-changing technologies, demographic shifts, climate change and globalisation bringing both opportunities and challenges, we now have an important role to play in enabling economic participation and encouraging sustainable growth.
Our Corporate Sustainability Framework
ANZ's Corporate Sustainability Framework supports the delivery of ANZ's business strategy. In 2016 we revised our Sustainability Framework so as to better reflect our most material social and environmental isues, and to align with the bank's purpose.
