Sustainability at Wesfarmers
Wesfarmers has been committed to creating value for its shareholders, employees and communities for more than a century
Long-term value creation is only possible if we play a positive role in the communities we serve. At Wesfarmers, sustainability is about understanding and managing the ways we impact our community and the environment, to ensure that we will be creating value in the future.
We acknowledge that the world is changing. Climate change is here. Increased weather volatility, more frequent extreme weather events, higher average temperatures and drier climates all have the potential to impact our operations and supply chains. The changes have already affected people all over the world and will continue to have serious implications for our customers, the community and the economy. These are risks we are managing because investing in Australia’s response to climate change will deliver significant economic, social and environmental benefits for us all.
Wesfarmers is committed to minimising our own footprint and to delivering solutions that help our customers and the community do the same. We endeavour to continuously improve our performance and publicly report on our progress in our annual sustainability report.
