As households increasingly make green choices like rooftop solar, insulation and double glazing, green home loans are becoming more popular. Making properties sustainable is not only good for the environment, but also adds value to homes.
Customers who finance a home with an approved green home loan through one of our participating exclusive partners could save on the cost of their Lenders' Mortgage Insurance (LMI)1.

Benefits of green homes
Making a property more sustainable and resilient adds value to it. The Australian Housing Outlook 2022-2025 explains how the housing market is changing as we move towards a more sustainable future.
Find out how an energy-efficient green home uses 66% less electricity, 51% less water and produces 62% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than the average Australian home3.
In support of QBE’s commitment to sustainability, 100% of the LMI premium collected will be channelled into investments that have social or environmental benefits through QBE’s Premiums4Good™ initiative.
