Sustainability leaders have been recognised in the Finder Green Awards as judged by Finder, a global fintech and Australia's most-visited comparison site.

The Australian companies and people leading the charge for sustainability have been announced across 21 categories in an awards ceremony in Sydney, with over 75 attendees.

Winners were selected based on broad environmental metrics, including greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy usage and waste avoiding landfill, as well as sector-specific factors for each industry.

This year, saw a host of new winners with Teachers Mutual Bank Limited winning Green Bank of the Year for the first time and felix doing the same in the Green Mobile Plan Provider of the Year category.

There were also a number of repeat winners. Australian Ethical won the Green Superannuation Fund of the Year category 3 years in a row and Woolworths took out Green Supermarket of the Year for the second year running.

Finder Australia CEO Chris Ellis congratulated all the finalists and winners.

"We're proud to see these awards being used as a benchmark for sustainable practices. This is great news for Australians that are spoilt for choice on greener options.

"However, picking the greenest option still isn't easy and that's the thinking behind these awards. We get our experts to do the hard work for you so that green decision-making can be as easy as possible.

"This year, we had more than 50 companies involved in the awards, ranging from banking to telecommunications and cars to cleaning products.

"The calibre and depth of entries we received this year were truly impressive so we take our hats off to all the winners and finalists which are all companies really walking the talk on climate action," he said.

Finder research has also shown that climate concern among Australian consumers is rising, with 69% of Australians concerned about their carbon footprint compared to 66% this time last year.

Ellis said there's a real need to educate Australians about how they can turn this concern into decisions that help to tackle climate change.

"As the climate crisis becomes more urgent, all decisions need to factor in sustainability considerations.

"We see it as our responsibility as Australia's most-visited comparison website to help people to do this. We will be actively looking for ways to integrate these sustainability messages into our website so that we can help to shift the behaviour of the millions of people using our services," he said.
