Doing what we can today, for our community tomorrow
At CBN, we are committed to creating lasting change through our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives. As a network of more than 900 Brokers across Australia, we have a real opportunity to make a positive difference – not just in how we conduct our work, but in how we set an example for others in the community.
The environment and CBN
In the insurance industry, the consequences of climate change – extreme weather events, fires, water shortages, rising sea levels – are always front of mind. With predictions reminding us bushfires, floods and cyclones are here to stay, we‘ve got to be proactive to ensure the sustainability of our operations and that of the insurance industry which is directly impacted by extreme weather events. At the end of the day, we’re here to provide the best possible insurance outcomes for clients, and if our industry is impacted, this only becomes more difficult to achieve.
We are carbon neutral
CBN is proud to be a carbon-neutral organisation, offsetting our emissions through certified carbon credits and tree-planting efforts. Our commitment to carbon neutrality means we play an active role in the fight against climate change and ensure our business is sustainable and ready to take action into the future.
Our social commitment
At CBN, there are more than 900 of us who believe in the power of connecting and growing together. We know that respectful communication is the key to any good relationship and we’re committed to timely and meaningful conversations with everyone – regardless of their culture or background. Our diversity is what makes us strong. At CBN, we:
Support the physical and mental health and well-being of our staff, network, and community
Encourage continual professional learning and development
Help communities in times of disaster through our affiliation with Foodbank Australia
Don’t engage in or tolerate unlawful workplace conduct, including discrimination, intimidation, or harassment.
Governance and transparency

Transparent, responsible and inclusive operations
Communicating our policies and strategy clearly to our community and stakeholders
