Contributing in your community

We understand that living in the world of our customers means actively engaging with and contributing to local communities.

Our employees are passionate about giving something back to the community. Together we support many community causes and organisations through our GIVE program, which stands for Giving, Investing, Volunteering and Emergency.

The GIVE program highlights the ways we contribute to local communities by giving donations to charities, investing in partnerships with community organisations, volunteering our skills and time to support community causes and responding to emergencies through supporting disaster relief and recovery activities.

Giving
Covers programs that enable employees, customers and shareholders to make regular donations to charity, with employee donations matched by ANZ
Investing
Covers the donations and investments ANZ makes to community initiatives consistent with our Corporate Sustainability priorities
Volunteering
Provides opportunities for individuals and teams to donate their skills and time to community causes
Emergency
Provides timely and effective support for disaster preparedness, relief and recovery efforts in our region

Each year we set clear and measurable targets for community investment in line with our Corporate Sustainability framework and priorities. These targets are designed to support our business strategy, brand and values, while ensuring we make a significant and focused contribution to the communities we serve.

Measuring and evaluating our community investment

We measure our investment in the community using the London Benchmarking Group (LBG) methodology - a global standard for reporting community investment. We also commission regular independent evaluations to assess the impact of our community investment programs and initiatives.

We communicate information about our community initiatives to our stakeholders through a monthly e-bulletin and annual and interim Corporate Responsibility reporting.
