Our purpose is to shape a world where people and communities thrive. It explains ‘why’ we exist and drives everything we do at ANZ, including the choices we make each day about those we serve and how we operate.

Through our purpose we have elevated areas facing significant societal challenges aligned with our strategy and our reach to:

  • Improving the financial wellbeing of our people, customers and communities by helping them make the most of their money throughout their lives;
  • Supporting household, business and financial practices that improve environmental sustainability; and
  • Improving the availability of suitable and affordable housing options for all Australians and New Zealanders.

Integrating ESG and purpose into our strategy has created an opportunity for us to better serve our customers and generate long-term shareholder value.
