We have a coherent strategy to drive competitive advantage:
ANZ's economic contribution to society is more than financial profits. We create jobs, pay salaries and invest in the skills of our people. We also pay taxes in the countries where we operate, support business in our supply chain and provide products that satisfy the needs of our customers.
Economic value generated and distributed (EVG&D), as defined in the Global Reporting Initiative's Sustainability Guidelines (G3), provides a basic indication of how an organisation has created wealth for stakeholders.
ANZ's EVG&D information is derived from our audited financial statements and community investment figures calculated using the London Benchmarking Group methodology.
In 2011, direct economic value generated was $35,817 million and total economic value distributed was $32,737 million.
