Sustainability Report

Our sustainability report provides a detailed assessment of our performance and progress against our sustainability strategy and targets.

In FY23, we have made good progress against our sustainability strategy, thanks to the hard work and commitment of our more than 120,000 team members.

Below is a snapshot of our FY23 sustainability achievements.

  • New renewable electricity agreements to bring us closer to our target of 100% renewable electricity by the end of FY25.
  • A commitment to reduce our Scope 3 emissions by working with more than 75% of our suppliers, by spend, to support them to set emissions reduction targets by the end of FY27.
  • Removal of soft-plastic shopping bags which is estimated to remove approximately 230 million plastic bags from circulation each year.
  • Achieving 41.5% women in leadership positions and a company-wide gender pay parity gap of less than 1%.
  • 92% of our supermarkets across Australia now employing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander team members. At the end of FY23, 3.5% of team members identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people, an increase from 3.2% in FY22.
  • Presenting partner of Sydney WorldPride as part of our commitment to create a safe and inclusive environment for LGBTQI+ people across our team.
  • Continued support for community organisations, including partnerships that support health and improve food access for vulnerable Australians. Coles has donated the equivalent of more than 200 million meals since 2011 through our partnership with SecondBite.
