Ethical Sourcing

 

Our Role

We aim to provide great products at the lowest prices for our customers while respecting human rights. We are on a journey to continuously improve our ethical sourcing standards and processes and are working in close partnership with our suppliers to ensure better working conditions in the countries and communities where we source.

We are committed to conducting business in accordance with our international obligations and in compliance with all applicable laws and we work with suppliers who share and follow our high standards of conduct in whichever country they operate.

We have joined Kmart Australia and Target Australia, our sister companies within the Wesfarmers Group, in committing to our Ethical Sourcing Code (ESC), which includes minimum requirements and expectations that our suppliers must meet as a condition of doing business with us.

The ESC is based on our commitment to respecting the core labour standards established by the International Labour Organization (ILO), protecting and respecting human rights as set out in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and promoting environmental sustainability.

The ESC forms part of the contract with our suppliers and is supported by a rigorous audit program. We expect our suppliers to be honest and transparent in their dealings with us and to commit to making continuous improvements in their operations.
