What it means to us.

Climate change is a major threat to the planet and humanity, our economy and wellbeing. Tackling this threat means being more efficient with the resources we use to steadily reduce our emissions. Taking action on climate change also presents opportunities – for new jobs, new technologies and new services. Our role as a bank is to help create a financial system that directs more funds towards sustainable purposes.

Westpac is proudly New Zealand's first Toitū carbonzero certified bank.

This means we’re helping grow a cleaner, healthier New Zealand.
