Woolworths is part of the community across Australia and New Zealand; in cities, regions and remote areas. We employ over 205,000 people who serve over 29 million customers a week.

We are transforming Woolworths to address significant market challenges. We will shortly launch our new Corporate Responsibility strategy, which sets out ambitious 2020 commitments.

This 2016 Corporate Responsibility report sets out how we have started to tackle these commitments – building trusted relationships, encouraging diversity and supporting a healthy society. This year has been about building internal consensus in order to develop clear and focused plans of action.


Unless otherwise stated, this report covers all our operations in Australia and New Zealand for the 2016 financial year – 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016 (FY16). Only workforce data (excluding Safety) is included for our global sourcing offices in China, Bangladesh and Thailand. With only 25% ownership and no operational control of Gage Road Brewery, there is no information reported for this business.
