We’re customer-owned and, between our two brands, have a long heritage of helping to build regions and communities that are vibrant and filled with opportunity.
At NGM Group, we are passionate about delivering the banking services our customers need today and will want tomorrow. We help our customers by supporting a strong economy, offering products that are competitive, and providing retail banking services that meet their needs.
With more than 1,600 passionate people working across both of our brands, NGM Group’s ESG Framework is about proactively supporting our people to be part of an organisation that truly cares about the impact we are having within the community. It is led by our people, for our people, and for the broad communities in which our people reside.
We are dedicated to providing career opportunities for our people and to delivering a workplace that is diverse, supportive, and inclusive. We provide our people with the opportunity to invest in their community with two paid leave days each year.
At NGM Group, we are committed to delivering a fit-for-purpose strategy aimed at reducing our use of natural resources, improving our efficiency practices, and reducing our overall environmental impact.
Our focus on climate is across a number of key areas, including:
- Identification of climate risk evident in our lending portfolios and associated actions;
- Our approach for implementing mandatory climate related disclosure reporting;
- Opportunities for further customer and community engagement on climate and the environment, including the identification of a pathway towards a net zero declaration.
We are committed to operating a business that is ethical and, honest, and delivers beneficial outcomes for our customers and local communities. The NGM Group Board recognises that a cohesive corporate culture is the cornerstone of an effective governance framework, and that it is responsible for establishing the “tone from the top”.
Our approach is detailed in the Corporate Governance Statement included in the Annual Report.
