Helping Australia's biggest company engage with its stakeholders
For the past three years BWD has partnered with Commonwealth Bank on a range of sustainability and corporate communications projects and strategies.
BWD advised on, designed and produced the last stand-alone annual report (2017) and the past two integrated reports, (2018 and 2019), delivered in print and online.
BWD devised the strategy, writing and design collateral (reports, infographics, campaigns, frameworks) for a wide range of the bank’s environmental and social commitments including financial elder abuse, youth financial wellbeing, mental health awareness, customer advocacy, climate, data privacy and tax transparency.
We undertook a nine-month materiality assessment to identify and prioritise the bank’s most material issues. This involved in-depth research, internal and external stakeholder engagement, a series of workshops with senior management and a report that was produced for the executive team.
BWD sought to broaden the understanding of sustainable business by co-sponsoring a BWD/CBA event under the auspices of the Australia Israel Chamber of Commerce on the Fourth Industrial Revolution and by co-hosting a workshop on the Sustainable Development Goals.
We have run annual workshops for the past three years for senior representatives of the risk, strategy, governance, sustainability and investor relations teams on the latest trends and best-practice in reporting.
