Sustainable sourcing

Sustainable sourcing

Working with our clothing supplier Pacific Brands has ensured quality, cost efficiencies and social and environmental risks are well managed.

Pacific Brands CEO, John Pollaers, said his growing workwear garment business enabled it to support ANZ in all markets in which we operate. "We admire ANZ's leadership and partnership with Pacific Brands around ethical and sustainable sourcing for its wardrobe needs. We have a shared commitment to addressing social and sustainability challenges around supply chain management in all sourcing markets."

Pacific Brands has robust social and environmental controls built into its policies and sourcing processes. It is a signatory to leading international standards such as the Ethical Trading Initiative, the only Australian company to have signed. The Initiative requires companies to have standards for wages, hours of work, health and safety, the right to join unions and no use of child labour. Pacific Brands is also a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant with a commitment to sustainable packaging, recycling and reducing packaging litter.

Benefits for ANZ include knowing social and environmental issues in this part of our supply chain are well managed, a reduction in cost and our people receive a high quality corporate wardrobe.

Our approach is underpinned by our Sourcing Policy, Sustainability Guidelines for Procurement and our Supplier Code of Practice.
