Environmental Responsibility

Our environmentally friendly initiatives and progress towards becoming a carbon neutral business.

Environmental Responsibility

Environmental & Social Responsibilty

Since 2008 WAW have been aligned to several local renewable energy initiatives and have provided customers with access to low-cost 'green' loans for installation of solar power generation panels and hot water services.

Along with recycling paper, print cartridges, plastic and cardboard, WAW are proud to be a collection point for Christmas card and mobile phone recycling and, where possible, we use 100% recycled paper for all printing.

Through sponsorship of community activities and financial products designed to assist customers, we are able to provide benefits to the local area and environment. WAW is putting the principles of corporate responsibility into action every day:

  • Provision of green loans at reduced rates for environmentally-focused purchases;
  • Promotion of eStatements as our preferred statement delivery option;
  • Reducing the number of printed copies of the WAW Annual Report by directing people to our website to read or download;
  • Limiting the mailing of our customer information newsletter SmartLINK and making them available online.

In addition to being economically sustainable and environmentally responsible, WAW’s corporate social responsibility signifies our understanding and our commitment to responding to the community in which we operate. WAW adheres to the Customer Owned Banking Code of Practice, a voluntary code of conduct that binds WAW to the promise of recognising the impact our actions have on our community, to promote community engagement and contribute to community actions and projects.
