The suppliers we partner with\r\n

We partner with an extensive range of suppliers to help us create thriving, liveable and sustainable cities. Our supply chain consists of small and medium local businesses through to large multinational companies. Our customers rely on us for consistent, high-quality services at affordable prices. This is why our supply partners must align with our policies, values and safety, governance, environmental and ethical standards.

Modern slavery statement\r\n

Under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth), we must submit a modern slavery statement to the Minister for Home Affairs that will be available on a public register showing how we address slavery risks in our operations and supply chains.


We support the implementation of anti-slavery initiatives to ensure we detect and address modern slavery and human trafficking risks across our business and supply chain. We submitted our first modern slavery statement in March 2021. Our Modern Slavery Statement '21, which covers the 2020–21 financial year, is our second. This statement outlines the steps we’re taking to ensure the goods and services we procure aren’t the product of modern slavery. It also highlights that we’ve exercised due diligence when procuring goods and services from our suppliers.
