About this report

For us sustainability means ensuring that what we do every day meets our financial, social and environmental responsibilities to our customers, communities and people.

We strive to be open, honest, fair and transparent in everything we do.

Through our sustainability materiality assessment process, we identify the issues and opportunities that matter most to our stakeholders. Our 2021 Sustainability Report is structured around the most pressing issues and provides information on our sustainability performance progress over the last year.

This contributes to Westpac Group's Sustainability Performance Report which aligns with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards (Comprehensive) and the AA1000 AccountAbility Principles Standard (2018).
