The Australian Banking Association (ABA) supports the intent of the National Energy Performance Strategy. The ABA considers that enhancements to building codes and regulations, coupled with decarbonising the grid, can be an effective way to support improvements to energy performance. We also advocate for the provision of rebates, tax incentives and subsidies to support the adoption of energy efficiency technologies, particularly in relation to individuals from low-income households who may not have the capacity to fund energy efficiency upgrades.Download PDF
The ABA submission to the Senate Economic Committee, the submission addresses the importance of certainty regarding capital raises and distributions to banks.
Australian banks operate in a competitive and dynamic environment. They compete with each other and with other financial service providers, including tech companies, to provide products and services to consumers. Given the pace of technological change and transformation, banks are constantly innovating their customer offerings and processes to remain competitive. To compete effectively, banks continually adapt to respond to customer needs and preferences. As such, banks have, over the past several decades, become increasingly digital.
This submission details the ABA’s views on key areas of focus including the future of work; equal opportunities for women; future labour force participation.
