The hardest thing about finding an ethical home loan is working out which banks are ethical and which aren’t. Every bank will claim to be ethical, so how do you sort out the genuine ones from the pretenders?
Backed by research
We’ve teamed up with ethical home loan experts abfinance to help you get a home loan that fits your values. abfinance uses independent research on the environmental, social and corporate governance of banks to find you banks that value the things that matter to you the most.
Behaviours that abfinance examines
Does it cost more to go ethical?
It’s a common misconception that you have to pay more for an ethical home loan – in fact you could end up saving money. That’s why ethical home loans fit our “Save the Planet – Save Money” philosophy.
Our partner abfinance can help you compare home loans from banks across the spectrum and show you how they stack up on feature, price and ethics. You can then choose the bank that suits your needs best. They’ll never push or pressure you into proceeding, especially into an ethical option that may cost you more.
You pay nothing for abfinance’s services
abfinance’s services come at no cost to you. If you take out a loan through abfinance, they get a commission from the lender. If you don’t, then you don’t have to pay them anything.
