The Group has a broad range of diverse suppliers which presents a great opportunity to grow our social procurement commitments, supporting our suppliers and communities. We are building strong foundations which include:
- A commitment to responsible procurement practices within our supply chain through all competitive tenders
- Ensuring our suppliers are assessed and selected on criteria such as WH&S, commitment to Indigenous Australians and environmental performance
- Running competitive tenders through our centralised procurement system to assess sustainability
The Group also has a Procurement Policy requiring all employees to adopt strategies to avoid unnecessary consumption and manage demand as well as support suppliers who are socially responsible and adopt ethical practices.
We work with suppliers to remedy any minor issues identified during the compliance and audit process, however we will not use suppliers who do not meet minimum labour standards and health and safety requirements.
