We’re ensuring our offset projects are more than reducing pollution, but also supporting Indigenous Australians' traditional knowledge, creating local jobs and improving Australia’s unique biodiversity.

The vision of the Aboriginal Carbon Fund (ACF) is to nurture and build a sustainable Aboriginal carbon industry. It builds wealth for Traditional Owners with environmental, social and cultural benefits. This is done via the ethical trade of carbon offsets with corporate Australia, including NAB and government agencies and institutions.

NAB was the first Australian bank to be certified carbon neutral in 20131. Furthermore, our long-term contract to purchase offsets from the ACF funds supports Indigenous organisations to employ rangers to undertake traditional land management practices.

Additionally, working with Indigenous business is part of our commitment to Indigenous Australia recognised in the NAB Reconciliation Action Plan. We take pride in Indigenous employment, increasing our understanding of Indigenous culture and helping Indigenous Australians access safe and affordable microfinance products and services.
