We recognise that sustainability drives success
It is fundamental to maintaining our social license to operate, and to ensuring we continue to grow a portfolio of leading, sustainable businesses.
We aim to operate our businesses in accordance with WesCEF’s seven sustainability focus areas that are in line with Wesfarmers community and environmental impact principles. They include:
- Employee Safety and Wellbeing
- Supporting Communities
- Environmental Stewardship
- Development, Diversity and Culture
- Ethical Sourcing and Human Rights
- Product Quality and Safety
- Workplace Relations and Labour Management
- Chemical Safety and Hazardous Waste
Meeting these commitments will ensure we create value now and into the future.
Each year, we outline our sustainability achievements in the Wesfarmers Annual Report.
