Sustainable procurement

We care about the way our suppliers do business.

We are a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, showing our commitment to responsible business practices in all our markets.

We have a Supplier Code of Conduct. It outlines our expectations in the areas of labour and human rights, health and safety, environment, ethical dealings and supply chain diversity.

Because we stand for more than short term gains, we plan to work with our suppliers to go beyond legal compliance, exceed minimum requirements and continuously improve.

This Code will help ensure that social and environmental performance is considered when choosing suppliers.

Supply chain plays a key role in Telstra’s sustainability agenda. We are committed to working with and encouraging suppliers to manage and reduce the environmental impacts of their operations as well as from the products and services they supply to Telstra.

Our Whistleblowing process provides an avenue for anyone to report suspected unethical, illegal or improper behaviour. It is supported by an independent service provider (STOPline) and all disclosures are treated confidentially and can be made anonymously.
