Our 10 community and environmental impact principles

To continue creating value over the long term, Wesfarmers is committed to proactively managing its community and environmental impact.  The following ten principles relate to the sustainability issues that have been identified as being most 'material' to us as a group.  Each of our divisions is applying these principles to its business, taking into account the specific circumstances of its operating environment and is encouraged to set its own internal targets in relation to these principles.  We will report against these principles annually.
