2018 Sustainability Targets

Each year we set public sustainability targets and a corresponding Group-wide program of work to support the delivery of our business strategy and respond to our most material sustainability issues.

Progress against our targets is reviewed by the Responsible Business Committee, and twice a year by the Board Ethics, Environment, Social and Governance Committee. Performance against our 2018 targets, many of which are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, are outlined below. More detail will be available in our 2018 Sustainability Review available at anz.com/cs in December.
