Suncorp Bank helps customers reduce their carbon emissions with new home loan offer

In a first for the Australian market, new and existing Suncorp Bank home loan customers who have a solar power system or will have one installed in their homes by 31 December 2021, may be eligible to receive a cash bonus from the Bank. 

In a customer survey recently conducted by Suncorp Bank[1], two of the top three sustainability priorities for customers are increasing the use of renewable energy (79%) and addressing climate change (77%).

“We know what’s important to our customers, and we are delivering banking that is good for them and the world,” Suncorp Bank CEO Clive van Horen said.

We are committed to provide banking solutions for customers that support sustainability and our Solar Home Bonus is a practical step towards a more sustainable world.

Not only will we continue to offer our customers more environmentally friendly banking options, the Bank has also committed to being 100% powered by renewable electricity by 2025, and to reach net zero greenhouse emissions across our operations by 2050.
