Strong partnerships with our suppliers are crucial to our shared success, which is why we work closely to enhance responsible business practices; support the procurement of sustainably-delivered services, products and materials; and promote practices that align with circular economy principles.
As signatories to the UN Global Compact since 2019, we adhere to the ten principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. This underpins our Group strategy, culture, partnerships and day-to-day operations.
We collaborated with the Property Council of Australia, Informed 365 and leading property organisations to create a pre-qualification supplier portal to ask suppliers about the actions they are taking to assess and address human rights issues and modern slavery risks across shared operations and supply chains. The portal recognises that our suppliers work with others in the property industry and enables our suppliers to complete one survey on their supply chains and practices, which can be shared with other property organisations. We invite all of our suppliers to complete the freely available annual pre-qualification assessment, which can be accessed at here. Once logged in you can also access additional information and education resources.
Respect for human rights is a key priority for our business. Our Human Rights Policy outlines that this priority extends to our Directors, employees, contractors, sub-contractors, consultants and our suppliers who we expect will conduct business in a safe, responsible and equitable manner and in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and standards.
We ask that our suppliers help us deliver on our human rights commitments through our Supplier Code of Conduct. If you are looking to work with us, please review this Code and confirm your organisation and your extended supply chain conform with our expectations and requirements.
