IMB Bank | Carbon Neutral Certification

IMB proud to announce carbon neutral certification

Today, we’re proud to announce a significant milestone in our commitment to environmental sustainability. IMB Bank has achieved carbon neutral certification from @ClimateActive, the Australian Government’s leading initiative for climate action.

We achieved certification for our offsetting projects, which included an entirely Aboriginal-owned, not-for-profit business that undertakes traditional fire management to reduce emissions (pictured, Warddeken ranger Ted Maralngurra conducts a burning program on the Arnhem Land plateau. Photo: David Hancock Photography); a native forest regeneration project to restore forest cover that had been lost to grazing and invasive species; and a project that will see forest plantations on degraded grasslands previously under extensive grazing.

This achievement wouldn’t have been possible without the meticulous due diligence conducted by @NdevrEnvironmental, which ensured that we only invested in high-quality carbon offsets.

Our certification is a testament to our ongoing commitment to addressing climate change and reducing our carbon footprint, and we will continue to take meaningful steps to help our members and communities be better off.

IMB pleased to support Declaration of Climate Action

The Declaration of Climate Action is a great initiative, and one IMB Bank is very pleased to support. Australians are witnessing first-hand the often-devastating impacts of climate change on their homes, their lives, and their livelihoods. The Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals (BCCM) Declaration recognises that co-ops and mutuals can work together for collective action on climate change because we are all motivated by improving the livelihoods of our members and the communities in which we operate.

IMB Bank Community Foundation Recipients

The National Gallery of Australia hosted our presentation for the #IMBBankCommunityFoundation ACT/Southern NSW grant recipients on Monday, November 13th.

In keeping with the Foundation’s grassroots focus, the recipients in attendance represented a wide variety of projects, each addressing local community needs: from a teen driver safety program, to a native animal sanctuary, to men’s sheds, the RFS, plastic recycling, and more.

Special thanks to Kristine Hewett, whose keynote speech gave real insight to the work of Adamas Nexus Registered Charity, a Canberra-based volunteer support group which helps survivors of domestic, partner and sexual abuse recover, rebuild and re-engage.
