WESFARMERS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2017

Minimising our waste

As part of its commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle, in the past year Kmart increased its focus on packaging reduction through its supply chain overseas initiative. This included a focus on reducing or eliminating all forms of cardboard packaging and replacing it with reusable PVC bags.
To date, the initiative has been rolled out to more than 75 per cent of apparel suppliers, and is currently being trialled with home textiles suppliers.

Building on this experience, Kmart aim to set a long-term target to reduce cardboard usage across our supply chain in the 2018 financial year.
