B Corp Certification™

We're proud to be a B Corp certified company, playing our part in creating an inclusive and sustainable economy where purpose-driven companies create benefits for everyone. 

Banking as a force for good

Certified B Corporations are committed to considering the impact of their decisions on workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. And now we're one of them.

Everything we do, from our green lending to our support of financial education programmes, has been assessed against the highest standards of environmental, social, and governance performance.

But there’s plenty more for us to do!

Balance between purpose & profit

Our B Corp Certification is proof we're heading in the right direction when it comes to balancing purpose and profits. It takes into account five key aspects of our business.

  • Governing our business in a way that’s ethical, responsible, and delivers on our purpose of Kiwi making Kiwi better off

  • Placing customers first in our design of products and services to ensure positive outcomes

  • Making a positive difference in our communities

  • Supporting and developing our people

  • Protecting and improving the environment through our processes and lending practices

What this means for you

The B Corp logo helps you instantly recognise businesses doing good globally. We want to make a positive impact in everything we do, that's why we partner with Kiwi organisations like the Department of Conservation and Banqer.

As a father of Gen Zs, I'm very aware our younger generations are demanding more from the companies they work for, invest in or buy from. And as a chief executive, I know customers are choosing to support businesses with products and services that do no harm and benefit all.
