These underpin our approach to operating a socially responsible business and leveraging our networks to deliver positive social outcomes.
In the past six years Indue has raised more than $70,000 through participation and support of the Vinnies CEO Sleepout and their fight against homelessness. We are also proud to have supported many other important causes close to our hearts through donations and volunteering, including Australian Red Cross Lifeblood, Drought Angels, Salvation Army Christmas Angels, The Kidney Foundation, OzHarvest, Movember, R U OK? Day and Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. In 2022 many of our customers were severely impacted by natural disaster. We were there to support them through this incredibly challenging time in any way we could to ensure their members and communities continued to have access to their critical banking services. We also continue to provide immediate access to disaster relief type payments for people impacted by natural disasters.
There are many parts of our business and supply chain that provide opportunities to improve sustainability.
We continue to work with our supply chain partners to explore better ways to deliver our payment services in sustainable ways, including by printing statements on responsibly forested paper and using sustainable ink processes. We are also working with our partners to start issuing cards made of Ocean Plastic or created from pulp to reduce waste and the environmental impact of physical cards.
The relocation of our Sydney office to 1 Denison Street has enabled our employees to be immersed in and benefit from the many environmental design features of our 5 Star Green Star new home. The new office provides a work environment that supports flexible work practices and leave policies, improves health and safety and contributes to Indue’s positive social and environmental impact.
Our initiatives are aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
We are proud to be building a business with a social conscience. Our commitment is to provide value for all our stakeholders, from our strong financial performance and growth, through to our various programs, initiatives and services focused on delivering positive impact for employees, environment, and community.
We look forward to continuing to work with our teams, partners, and customers to further enhance our social impact and sustainability initiatives in the future.
