Ensuring all suppliers are compliant with the Ethical Sourcing Policy

To ensure that goods and services are ethically sourced, all Officeworks’ suppliers are required to adhere to the Officeworks’ Ethical Sourcing Policy. The policy is built upon the standards set by the International Labour Organisation and the principles of the Ethical Trading Initiative.

In the past twelve months, Officeworks reviewed 441 independent ethical sourcing audits, and worked with suppliers to implement corrective action plans where non-conformance was identified.

Officeworks recognises that ethical sourcing is a journey that is underpinned by transparency, integrity, collaboration and continuous improvement.  Going forward, the business remains committed to working with suppliers to improve the working conditions of the people throughout Officeworks’ supply chain.
