Our suppliers play an important role in our sustainability performance and we aim to work with people and businesses that are willing to partner with us to deliver sustainable outcomes.
We ask all businesses who seek to work with us to adhere to Westpac Group’s Responsible Sourcing Code of Conduct. This sets out our expectations of suppliers and shares our sustainability and risk management principles for doing business.
We may undertake screening, due diligence and assessments of suppliers to determine levels of sustainability risk and performance and work with them to manage risks and drive more sustainable outcomes.
We are committed to increasing opportunities in our supply chain for businesses that have a social or environmental mission or that are owned by or employ groups that are underrepresented in the Australian economy.
In particular, we are interested in developing relationships with:
- Businesses majority owned and controlled by Indigenous owned businesses (at least 50% owned)
- Businesses owned by women (at least 51% owned and controlled)
- Australian Disability Enterprises
- Social Enterprises
- B Corporations
