Bunnings is committed to reducing the environmental impact of their operations. Integral to this is minimising operational waste, optimising product packaging, and implementing product stewardship programs for customers.
Climate and Energy
Bunnings recognises that their business plays an important role in reducing carbon emissions and addressing climate change. Bunnings is committed to sourcing 100 per cent renewable electricity by 2025 to help achieve their target of net zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030.
Bunnings is committed to participating in the communities in which they operate by contributing to local, regional, and national causes, charities, and organisations. Support for local community groups includes community sausage sizzles, team member involvement in community projects, product contributions and in-store fundraising.
Diversity and Inclusion
At Bunnings, team members are the heart and soul of the business. Bunnings are committed to creating a welcoming and supportive workplace for all. Reflecting the diverse communities in which they operate, Bunnings provides opportunities for all people regardless of their age, gender, cultural heritage, sexual orientation, or abilities.
Health and Wellbeing
At Bunnings, team members are at the heart of the business and their safety and wellbeing remain the highest priority. By striving to provide a safe environment for team members, customers, suppliers and visitors, Bunnings aims to ensure everyone returns home safely.
Bunnings recognises its role in upholding human rights, with its robust Ethical Sourcing Program continuing to evolve in line with industry developments. This program includes relevant provisions in supplier trading terms, supply chain visibility, risk assessments, and third-party audits, all targeted at identifying issues and working in partnership with suppliers and manufacturers to resolve these issues.
Nature and Biodiversity
As a leading retailer of home improvement and outdoor living products, Bunnings’ goal is to ensure all timber and wood products originate from legal and well-managed forest operations.
The safety and wellness of Bunnings’ team members and customers remain its highest priority. Selling products that are safe, fit for purpose and comply with relevant Australian, New Zealand and international mandatory or voluntary standards remains key to Bunnings’ efforts.
