As an organisation that purchases a vast range of products and services, we recognise the opportunities our supply chain creates to drive positive social and environmental change.
Through our Supplier Inclusion and Diversity Policy (PDF 263KB), we have committed to increase opportunities in our supply chain for businesses that are driven by a social or environmental mission, or that support people who have traditionally been financially excluded.
We also encourage all of our suppliers to value inclusion and diversity within their own operations.
We are interested in developing relationships with:
- Indigenous owned businesses (at least 51% owned and controlled).
- Businesses owned by women (at least 51% owned and controlled).
- Australian Disability Enterprises.
- Social Enterprises.
- B Corporations.
If you are a business that fits this criteria, register your interest to become a supplier to Westpac by filling in this Registration Form.
