Woolworths Group’s Sustainability Plan 2025 encompasses a range of initiatives across three key pillars: Planet, Product and People to deliver a better tomorrow for future generations. We’re committed to growing greener every day by cutting emissions, eliminating food waste, reducing plastic and sourcing responsibly.
We value the diversity of our country and the part we play in creating a vibrant and inclusive workforce that reflects and connects with the communities we serve.
As Australia’s largest employer, we listen and learn; we care deeply and do the right thing, which is why we collaborate with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, families, friends, leaders and team members towards reconciliation not only during NAIDOC Week but every day. Our vision is one of understanding and healing of the past for a better tomorrow in which all Australians have an equitable voice and access to opportunities.
Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and as a nation. Our relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are at the heart of this journey.
We aim to collectively build trust, respect and positive relationships that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures.
WooliesX has a huge digital footprint across Australia and beyond but we are deeply rooted in Surry Hills – our first office space. That’s why we are proud to support ID. Know Yourself, the first Aboriginal mentoring organisation for young First Nations people in foster care in our Surry Hills community.
Most young Indigenous people in care don’t have a choice. They are stripped of their community, culture, identity, and sense of belonging. Statistics show they have an increased likelihood of not finishing high school, becoming homeless, and finding themselves in the criminal justice system. ID. Know Yourself gives them an opportunity to learn about their heritage; reverse the statistics and change their future.
Through a long-term partnership, we collaborate with ID. Know Yourself to support young Indigenous people they mentor and improve our knowledge and action towards reconciliation. We’ve provided access to vital training, supplied the food they use to teach their youth to cook and our team has volunteered and mentored. In addition, we exchange knowledge and skills to help our business improve and grow. We are proud to partner with ID. Know Yourself, learn from their team and support their work guiding Indigenous youth to unlock potential and create a better tomorrow.
