Established in 1994 in Richmond, Victoria, Officeworks is passionate about helping make bigger things happen for its customers, team, the community and stakeholders. It operates 167 stores across Australia, a website that is home to more than 40,000 products, a national call centre, and a business team that helps micro, small and medium-sized businesses start, run and grow.
Officeworks inspires Australians to work, learn, create and connect with a wide range of office supplies, technology, furniture, art supplies, education resources and helpful services like print & create and on-site and remote tech support through Geeks2U – delivering an experience that is easy and engaging, no matter how customers choose to shop.
Officeworks is committed to supporting people and the planet. Not just because it is the right thing to do, but also because it’s important to customers and to them. Their role in helping drive positive change across social and environmental issues is more important than ever. They know their customers want to make sustainable choices. They will continue to focus on expanding their impact beyond their networks and supply chains, to help drive real change for their team, their customers, and all the communities where they operate in, both at home and abroad.
In 2020 they set some ambitious goals because they’re committed to making a lasting, positive difference by putting people and the planet at the heart of what they do. Supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, their People & Planet Positive 2025 commitments are an evolution of their progress made to date and sit across six pillars: Team, Community, Human Rights, Climate Action, Circular Economy and Sustainable Purchases.
Their success to-date is shared, and all these achievements would not be possible without the support of their team, customers and partners such as the UN Global Compact Network Australia.
As part of Wesfarmers, Officeworks has been a proud supporter of the UNGCNA since 2015.
