WESFARMERS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2018

OUR PERFORMANCE

We are proud of our progress in the following areas:

We acknowledge that we can improve our performance

We will continue to focus on ethical sourcing and human rights, especially supply chain transparency. Identifying critical breaches in the factories which supply to our businesses and require remediation is an important step in this process.

Wesfarmers' workforce is made up of 54 per cent women and 46 per cent men. A key opportunity for the Group is to increase the percentage of leadership positions held by women. Over the last five years there has been a 5 per cent increase in women in management roles and a 5.5 per cent increase in women in senior roles.

We will continue to focus on climate change resilience, especially energy efficiency. We are proactive about managing risks associated with climate change because we believe this will deliver significant long term benefits for us all.

Year on year reductions in waste is hard to achieve as our businesses continue to grow. This year our waste to landfill decreased by four per cent.
