Finder Green

Helping you make greener choices for the planet.

Climate change is a big issue that demands big solutions. But there are lots of ways we can make a difference in our own lives too. For example, you could switch to an ethical super fund, get a green energy plan or cut down on plastics. Or maybe you want to do more but don't know where to start?

Finder Green is a resource to help you make changes that work for you and for the world. Here, you'll get details of the companies we've rated as most eco-friendly through the Finder Green Awards, links to our favourite sustainable shopping products (our Finder Green Faves) and in-depth chats with organisations doing their bit for the earth (in Going Green).

Plus a whole lot more about the different ways you can make greener choices and our Green report from 2023.

Finder Green Awards

The Finder Green Awards are our home-grown awards system where we comb through hundreds of companies to find the most sustainable of the lot. You and millions of other Australians can feel good about taking your money to any of these award-winning companies, because they're doing their bit for the planet.

Here are some important criteria we used in judging:

  • Greenhouse gas emissions/carbon neutrality.
  • Renewable energy use.
  • Minimal landfill waste.
  • Climate-friendly products (reused, refurbished, recycled).
  • Sustainable delivery and packaging.

Green Money

There are lots of big businesses that don't seem to care about climate change and the environment, except when it comes to their bottom line. But there is also a growing number of ethical businesses and organisations that are focused on helping the environment. Here, you'll find out about green banks, super funds, insurers, other lenders and even ethical investment options you can choose to help your money make a positive change.

Green Energy

Green energy is not new (Australia has had solar technology for over 30 years, for example). But it has taken a while for energy providers to offer more green options. The good news is, switching to a greener energy company doesn't have to cost a fortune. In some cases, it could even save you money and these guides take you through some different options.

Green Travel

Travel doesn't have to leave a big trail of carbon footprints. There is a growing number of ways you can travel responsibly, from buying carbon-offsets for your flights to choosing sustainable accommodation and eco-friendly tours.

Finder's green report findings

Concern for the environment has fallen slightly

Since releasing last year's Green Consumer Report 2023, Australians have become slightly less concerned about the planet. We compared the year ending April 2023 to the year ending April 2022 and found the percentage of people who are not at all concerned about their carbon footprint has risen from 31% to 34%. The percentage who are extremely concerned decreased from 14% to 12%.
