Our Ethical Sourcing Code
Target Australia has joined Kmart Australia, our sister company within the Wesfarmers Group, to establish a combined Department Stores Ethical Sourcing Program. The ethical sourcing program is supported by our Ethical Sourcing Code (“ESC”), which includes minimum requirements and expectations that all suppliers must meet as a condition of doing business with Target and Kmart. The ESC is based on our commitment to respecting the core labour standards established by the International Labour Organization (ILO), protecting and respecting human rights as set out in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and promoting environmental sustainability. The ESC forms part of the contract with our suppliers and is supported by a rigorous audit program. We expect our suppliers to be honest and transparent in their dealings with us and to commit to making continuous improvements in their operations.
