Our purpose

We believe in challenging the status quo. We also believe in being transparent with our people, customers and communities.

Who we partner with has a significant impact on our goals to help the world transition to a more sustainable future.

To help drive how we run our business and supply chain activities, we’re committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and we’ve become a member of leading global platform - Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX).

Our sustainable procurement program has been recognised through multiple awards.

Our principles

Our supply chain and sourcing of products and services must:

  1. never compromise workplace health, safety and wellbeing 
  2. have zero tolerance for harassment, abuse and discrimination 
  3. prioritise social enterprises, indigenous and ethically certified goods & services
  4. not use exploitative or forced labour or exploitative fair wage practises
  5. respect collective bargaining and freedom of association 
  6. ensure environmental impacts and hazards are minimised.

Supplier Code of Conduct

We take care in selecting suppliers of goods and services that meet our social, ethical and environmental standards.

Suppliers must comply with our Code of Conduct and complete a self-assessed questionnaire via SEDEX to benchmark how your business is tracking when it comes to social, ethical and environmental risks.

Australia Post Purchase Order terms and conditions

Generally, all goods and/or services we procure will be subject to our Purchase Order terms and conditions unless we have entered into a separate agreement with the supplier.

Where goods are required to be packaged and delivered to us, packaging, palletisation and delivery requirements will also apply. These requirements should be read in conjunction with the Purchase Order terms and conditions unless we have entered into a separate agreement with the supplier.

Registering with SEDEX is a great opportunity to further cement the strong relationship you have with us, and potentially your other customers.
