Paperless banking

Over 6.5 tonnes of paper and cardboard are sent to landfill each year by Australians1, that’s why supporting the environment and taking practical action against the use of paper is important to us at Qudos Bank. The growing reliance in digital services has allowed us to go paperless with our Annual Report, MyQ Newsletter, important notifications and now statements, reducing environmental pollution meaning more savings back to our customers and back to the planet.

We have recently switched all customers over to receive eStatements, to find out more about this initiative, visit https://www.qudosbank.com.au/campaigns/estatements/

We aim to continue building on a paperless environment by communicating with our customers electronically (when possible), that’s why it is important to ensure your contact details are up to date. To find out how to update your details visit the FAQs section of our website.

Qudos Bank Around the Office

At Qudos Bank we believe sustainability is essential now and into the future, that’s why we have incorporated a range of sustainable practices into our every day activities including:

  • Recycling our toner cartridges from printers around our Head Office
  • Recycling our coffee pods
  • Reducing printing and using recycled paper when printing is required
  • Using motion detector lighting around our Head Office to save on energy
  • Our Head Office building is NABAR 4.5 star and 4 star green rating
  • All new staff get a reusable keep cup

We are continually looking for new ways to improve our sustainable practices.


 

Greenfleet

Qudos Bank has worked with Greenfleet for 15 years! Greenfleet is a leading not-for-profit environmental organisation focused on protecting our climate by restoring our forests.

We recognise the importance of playing an active role in helping our environment and are proud to take practical action by partnering with Greenfleet.

Each year, Qudos Bank offsets enough carbon emissions to cover 1 car per employee and all of our work related air travel. This year, Greenfleet will plant native trees on our behalf to help establish biodiverse forests and offset 1,019 tonnes of CO2-e. We are proud to report that over the past 10 years, we have offset more than 14,000 tonnes of carbon through Greenfleet’s reforestation projects resulting in the planting of around 50,000 native trees.

Greenfleet has been taking climate action for 25 years and since 1997 has planted 10 million native trees across 500 biodiverse forests in Australia and New Zealand. These forests are legally protected and over their lifetimes will capture more than 3.9 million tonnes of CO2-e.
