Human rights at Coles

At Coles, we are committed to respecting human rights across everything we do. People are central to our business, and we impact the daily lives of many including our team members, customers, suppliers, workers in our supply chains and the communities in which we live and work.

Our latest statement was prepared in accordance with the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018.  It is available to view here as a PDF.Opens in new window Modern Slavery Statement, View PDF, file size 1.7MB, Opens in new window
