CBA Sustainability Assessment

Executive Summary

 

This report assesses sustainability practices of CBA, one of the largest banks in Australia. The study finds that CBA is among the four big banks in Australian and plays a critical role in the Australian Economy. CBA is the ranked the most sustainable bank in Australia for two consecutive years, which is a testament to the sustainability efforts of the bank. On the sustainability index, the report ranks the banks as moving towards a sustainable organisation. However, the report finds that the bank has some challenges in corporate governance, disclosure, internal monitoring mechanism, legal department and supernormal profitability. Therefore, the report recommends that the bank should make strategic change to improve its corporate governance culture. This will add value because it will strengthen the framework to inform, perform, and hold to accountable.
