Corporate Responsibility

Both domestically and globally, Woolworths is quietly earning respect and recognition for the integrity and depth of its corporate responsibility programs. 

In 2013 and 2014, Woolworths Limited was recognised as the global leader of the food and staples retailing sector in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).  We were the first Australian retailer to be recognised as a leader the DJSI.

Woolworths Limited is a diverse and complex organisation that touches the lives of literally millions of people either as customers, investors, suppliers, employees or members of the communities in which we operate.  We do our upmost to provide the very best choice, value, quality and service possible and to deliver these as responsibly as we can. 

  • As an employer of more than 198,000 people, we strive to provide security and opportunity for them to realise their potential.
  • As a customer of many thousands of suppliers, we aim to be collaborative, fair and focused on mutual benefit. 
  • As an investment for more than 441,000 direct shareholders, we offer long term, sustainable value creation. 
  • And as a community neighbour we do our best to be a shoulder to lean on in a crisis and make a positive difference every day.

Woolworths has achieved a great deal but there are many more opportunities open to us.  By listening closely to our customers and working collaboratively with our stakeholders, we will continue to drive positive change for our business, our community and our society.
