From its origins 103 years ago as a Western Australian farmers’ cooperative, Wesfarmers Limited has grown into one of Australia’s largest listed companies. Their diverse business operations across Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Ireland include supermarkets; department stores; home improvement and office supplies; coal production and export; chemicals, energy and fertilisers; and industrial and safety products.
At Wesfarmers, sustainability is about understanding and managing the ways they impact the community and the environment, to ensure that they will still be creating value in the future. Wesfarmers recognise that they have a role in investing in Australia’s response to climate change as this will deliver significant economic, social and environmental benefits for all.
Wesfarmers is committed to minimising their own footprint and to delivering solutions that help their customers and the community do the same. They are committed to making a contribution to the communities in which they operate through strong partnerships and providing direct and indirect employment. They endeavour to continuously improve their performance and publicly report on their progress and challenges.
