Sourcing Ethically

Kmart aims to provide great products at irresistible prices for our customers while respecting human rights. We are on a journey to continuously improve our processes and ethical sourcing standards and are working closely with our suppliers, NGOs, unions and government representatives to ensure better working conditions in the countries and communities where we source.

We are committed to conducting business with the highest standards of integrity, in accordance with our international obligations and in compliance with all applicable laws and we work with suppliers who share and follow our high standards of conduct in whichever country they operate.

Kmart’s Ethical Sourcing program includes minimum requirements and expectations that all suppliers must meet as a condition of doing business with Kmart. The Ethical Sourcing Code is based on Kmart’s commitment to respecting the core labour standards established by the International Labour Organization (ILO), protecting and respecting human rights as set out in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and promoting environmental sustainability.
