Our divisions work collaboratively with non-government organisations (NGOs) on a range of projects. NGOs engage with us on issues such as human and labour rights and environment and public policy.
We continue to build relationships with accredited and reputable NGOs, such as Oxfam Australia, WWF Australia and Care Australia. This year Officeworks began an important partnership with Greening Australia.
We work with a range of industry associations appropriate for our operations including the Australian Packaging Covenant, the Business Council of Australia, the Carbon Market Institute, the Plastics and Chemicals Industries Association, the National Retail Association, Australian Coal Association, the Queensland Resources Council, the Green Building Council of Australia, Retailer Supplier Roundtable and the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
This year NGOs engaged with us on ethical sourcing and human rights generally as well as the possible introduction of a Modern Slavery Act in Australia, which Wesfarmers supports.
