Banking on a better world

Everyone deserves a healthy environment wherever they live and work. If we want to protect the planet, we know now is the time to act.

At Suncorp Bank, we want to play our part to deliver a sustainable approach to banking. We are looking at our business inside and out, from the products and services we provide to how we operate behind the scenes.

In 2019, we became the first non-major Australian bank to become a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB). This United Nations initiative aims to help the banking industry progress towards achieving the UN's Sustainability Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

Our journey to net-zero

In 2022, Suncorp Bank set a benchmark across the banking industry. Under the Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard, we became the first Australian financial institution to be certified carbon neutral for both our operations and personal deposit transaction accounts.

Getting certified means we’re on the right track, but real progress is made through action. By taking steps every day to actively reduce our climate impact.

Reaching net zero is a journey and we’re committed to accelerating the reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions. Here’s what we’re aiming for: 

100% renewable electricity across our operations by 2025


Reducing our Scope 1 & 2 greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) to net-zero by 2030.

Case study: Achieving carbon neutrality with carbon farming

Our journey to net zero involves fostering sustainable practices across our business. An example of this is how we counterbalance the environmental impact of our activities through carbon offsetting.

This is possible because of people like Peter Ponder and Jim Strachan. Peter and Jim are carbon farmers who help regenerate rural habitats and remove carbon from the atmosphere. With this type of land management, they can calculate the amount of carbon removed and sell carbon credits to companies like Suncorp Bank.

This approach allows us to account for our emissions and contribute to a more sustainable future. Learn the story of carbon farmers like Peter Ponder and Jim Strachan and how they’re future-proofing their farms.
