Corporate responsibility at AVC Trading

As a Wesfarmers business, AVC Trading aims to operate in accordance with Wesfarmers’ own 10 community and environmental impact principles. The 10 principles cover people, sourcing, community, environment, and governance, and include the below.

Our people

  • We maintain a relentless focus on providing safe workplaces.
  • We provide opportunities for our people to enhance their job performance and develop their careers.
  • We strive to create an inclusive work environment, with particular attention to gender diversity and the inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


  • We commit to strong and respectful relationships with our suppliers.
  • We strive to source products in a responsible manner while working with suppliers to improve their social and environmental practices.


  • We make a positive contribution to the communities in which we operate.
  • We are committed to providing consumers with safe products.


  • We strive to reduce the emissions intensity of our business and improve their resilience to climate change.
  • We strive to reduce our waste to landfill and water use where possible.


  • We maintain robust corporate governance policies in all our businesses.

Ethical employment

Our staff are our greatest asset, and we are committed to providing opportunities to enhance their performance and experiences at work to help them advance their careers.

We work closely with many suppliers across Asia and ethical sourcing is a key focus for our business. We aim to ensure that human rights are understood, respected, and upheld across our supply chain.

As a Wesfarmers business, we mitigate the risk of unethical practices in our supply chain by having ethical sourcing programs in place that take a risk-based approach and consider suppliers of products and services. We adhere to Wesfarmers 2020 Modern Slavery Statement, which applies to and describes the steps taken by Wesfarmers to minimise the risk of modern slavery occurring in our business or supply chain.

Along with the other seven companies in Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy & Fertilisers (WesCEF), AVC Trading is working towards achieving net zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2050, and our company is playing its role in achieving this goal for WesCEF.
