Supply Principles and Commitments
Shell seeks to work with contractors and suppliers who contribute to sustainable development and are economically, environmentally and socially responsible. Our core principles relate to business integrity, HSSE, social performance and human rights.
Shell has a number of Supplier Principles in place, which include statements around business integrity, Health Safety Security and Environment (HSSE), social performance and human rights. In particular, the Principles state that contractors should:
- Not tolerate, permit or engage in bribery, corruption or unethical practices
- Have a systematic approach to HSSE management, designed to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and to achieve continuous performance improvement
- Be committed to protect the environment in compliance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations
- respect their neighbours and contribute to the societies in which they operate
- conduct their activities in a manner that respects human rights as set out in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the core conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO)
Shell Australia also has a Commitment to Local Content, which commits us to leveraging our supply chain and collaborating with our non-operated venture partners to ensure full, fair and reasonable opportunity for Australian enterprises, and the employment of Australians in the areas in which we operate.
Through our Commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People, Shell Australia aims to build meaningful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities based on honesty, integrity and respect. Shell aspires to positively contribute to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia by recognising their culture and rights and by jointly seeking opportunities to work together for mutual benefit.
