Australian Businesses Driving Sustainability

The Business Council for Sustainable Development Australia (BCSD Australia) is the national peak body representing forward-thinking companies and organisations that are working towards the transition to a sustainable Australia. Our mission is to accelerate this transition by making sustainable business more successful.

We are the Australian partner of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). Previously known as Sustainable Business Australia, our members come from all sectors and industries, representing more than 150,000 employees across Australia.

 

Our members believe that by integrating social and environmental impacts with financial results, business lowers its risk profile, makes better decisions and creates the solutions needed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

The QBE Foundation is pleased to announce its first seed capital grant of $500,000 to First Australians Capital (FAC) – an Indigenous-led organisation focused on boosting investment readiness and designing capital solutions for Indigenous businesses.

The grant will form part of a seed capital pool established by FAC which aims to fund start-ups and early-stage businesses and address the historical and systemic barriers that have hindered Indigenous entrepreneurs' access to equitable capital.

The funding will also contribute to FAC's Investment Capacity Building program, offering wrap-around tailored support for investees to enhance their confidence, resilience, and capacity to grow and sustain their businesses. Read more here.
