Project Partners


Geelong Sustainability acknowledges the significant partnerships we have formed with the organisations listed below. Their financial support has been central to the success of many Geelong Sustainability-led projects and events. By proactively building productive partnerships, we believe we can more effectively advocate on local sustainability and environmental issues.

Geelong Sustainability has formed an affinity partnership with Bank Australia based on our mutual environmental goals. Geelong Sustainability supporters, who are interested in a home loan from a bank that doesn’t and won’t finance fossil fuel projects, should investigate their very competitive home loan rates. We will receive a contribution (0.4% of loan value) when anyone shifts or opens a home loan with Bank Australia.
