Our Woolworths Group Sustainability Plan 2025 enables us to create a better tomorrow. This plan covers our 5 guiding principles and shows how we turn these into specific goals and detailed commitments that we aim to achieve by 2025.
To turn guiding principles into action, we’ve broken them down into three distinct focus areas: People, Planet and Product. Animal Welfare is covered under the Product focus area, Goal 4: Lead the future of protein. Our animal welfare strategy and policy are underpinned by our core values “I care deeply” and “I always do the right thing”.
Animal welfare is incredibly important to Woolworths, our suppliers, and our customers. We are committed to improving the lives of animals within our supply chains.
Woolworths Group has adopted the Farm Animal Welfare Committee’s (FAWC 2009) ‘Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare’. These freedoms are the framework that guides the development of Woolworths Group policies and procedures for animal welfare. We regularly review our animal welfare policies and procedures against the latest science to drive continual improvement for the welfare of the animals in our supply chains.
