Organisation and Service
Member since 2022
Suncorp Group has committed to source 100% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025.
“Our certification sets the benchmark across the banking industry – our transaction accounts are the most widely used financial service across our customer base. Achieving carbon neutrality for our transaction services has been prioritised to offer customers a certified carbon neutral alternative.”
When calculating our emissions, Suncorp Bank’s carbon neutral boundary includes the direct emissions footprint within our operational control like retail branches, commercial offices and contact centres, and other emissions which we can influence like emissions from business travel, employee commuting and working from home emissions.
In 2022, Suncorp Group strengthened its Scope 1 and 2 commitment to net-zero by 2030, which will be achieved through a combination of renewable electricity purchase, vehicle fleet optimisation and other operational efficiency improvements. In 2023, Suncorp Bank plans to continue progress on accounting for Scope 3 emissions from its operations and lending portfolio to enable target setting and reduction strategies.
