Our climate action commitment

We recognise our position as a leader within our industry, and more generally as corporate citizens. We continually review the social, economic and environmental impact of our operations. We're pleased to report our initiatives:

  • No less than 75% of members' funds awaiting payment are invested with banking institutions who do not themselves lend to corporations involved with fossil fuels. As at 30 June 2020, 100% of our invested funds were placed with such an institution.
  • In early 2016 we saturated the roof of our head office in Ultimo with over 100 solar panels. From this system we generate approximately 40,000 kWh per year, which is returned to the broader electricity grid. This represents around 5% of our own use. Our boards have approved that 100% of our electricity use should be offset (carbon neutral). In New Zealand we already have contracts in place which are based on 100% renewable energy.
  • Green waste bins in our offices are collected and turned into usable matter rather than ending up in landfill.
  • We've recycled 'grey water' in our Ultimo office since 2008.
