Harvey has gone from leaps to bounds since our backflip last year on not building a bigger team. In addition to the strong and lean crew of Becky, Simon, Sarah and Rachel, we’ve had Ezra, Gillian and a growing list of experts who provide support.Read more

A few months ago we went to Cambodia & Bangladesh to meet our colleagues, connect with end customers like Mrs Jonaki Akhtar in Bosila to get a first hand understanding of how 1 billion people live, without clean cooking.

We’re acutely aware of the fact that Harvey doesn’t exist in a vacuum. And even though we may be small, our operations and decisions can have a direct impact on our immediate (and extended) communities. So we strive, at all times, to enrich the community in which we operate.Read more
It goes without saying that the climate crisis is the biggest issue facing our species right now.

Over the course of 2020, we helped more conscious businesses grow. And that’s really what this is all about for us.

August was a big month for us. After a year in business, we knew we were doing good things for good people, but couldn’t shake the question: were we doing enough of it? Don't become a B Corp if you’re not ready to be challenged.Read more

When setting up Harvey we learnt there are banks and there are Good banks. We've always been aware of and loved Bendigo Bank, but they're not the only one and some are taking ethical banking to another level.Read more
We spend a lot of time thinking about ways we can help create a sustainable future for our planet and the people on it. Businesses have the power to be a constructive or destructive force, which is the reason we’re selective about who we work with. By helping conscious businesses grow, we can help them increase their impact..
When taking on a client, we assess whether they contribute to one or more of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
If they’re destructive on any goal we won’t work with them. Simple. If they’re making real change for good we offer a low-bono rate, investing additional time into their business.
We acknowledge Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and pay respect to their cultures and Elders past and present.
