Climate and sustainability issues are influencing decision-making across many facets of the wine industry. The same is true in financial services where capital has become ‘carbon-conscious’ – changing community expectations mean more scrutiny over banks approach to climate change; regulators are evaluating bank’s management of climate change financial risks while investors are setting more stringent emissions thresholds for their investments. National Australia Bank is Australia’s leading business bank. We support our agribusiness customers through a network of 650 regional and specialist bankers in over 120 locations. Sustainability is a core part of NAB’s strategy because the success of our economy depends on our climate. Sustainable business is good business and underpins our licence to operate. NAB has committed to aligning our lending portfolio to net zero emissions by 2050. Serving our customers well is why we are here. NAB is responding to customer demand by creating products that help to navigate the challenges of a decarbonising world. NAB is a reliable partner to support the Australian wine industry and maintains its position as a premium supplier to both domestic and international markets.
