Supplier inclusion and diversity

With thousands of suppliers providing us with products and services, we recognise the opportunities our supply chain creates to positively impact people through inclusive and diverse sourcing strategies and practices. 

 

Through our Supplier Inclusion & Diversity Principles (PDF 104KB), we seek to promote social and economic participation with our supplier partners.
 

Westpac is particularly focused on developing relationships with:
 

  • Indigenous owned businesses (at least 50% owned)
  • Businesses owned by women (at least 51% owned and controlled)
  • Australian Disability Enterprises
  • Social Enterprises 
  • B Corporations 


Further details of how we define these groups can be found in the Westpac Diverse Supplier Group Definitions (PDF 38KB).

You can also refer to the Westpac Group Supplier Playbook (PDF 993KB) which helps suppliers understand how we work and what we look for when selecting a supplier.
