Mortgage lender and one of Australia’s big four banks, the Westpac Group, has bagged the title as the Socially Responsible Bank of the Year in the 2015 Money Consumer Finance Awards.
In particular, the award recognised the bank's social and environmental leadership for the third consecutive year.
This year’s win is the fifth annual award by Westpac Group since Money launched the category in 2008.
Earlier this year, Westpac also received an award as the most sustainable bank globally in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and inclusion for the ninth time in the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World.
"This reflects the outstanding leadership shown by Westpac Group in delivering deep social and environmental impact to create a sustainable future for the people who bank with us, work with us, invest in us and are part of our broader communities," said general manager for Corporate Affairs & Sustainability, Carolyn McCann.
