Every day we reach more Australians than any other business in the country –

– We help over 1 million Australians across our retail network.
– 4,406 Post Offices,
– 15,591 street post boxes

We are never far away – making it easier for our customers and the community to and engage in environmental practices such as recycling of difficult materials including printer cartridges, cigarette butts and mobile phones.
Our Environmental Sustainability Framework (ESF), endorsed by the executive leadership team in October 2013, demonstrates our understanding that our actions are important to our customers and community, as well as to our business outcomes, and facilitated the enterprise-wide transition from a strong foundation of carbon management to a value-driven perspective.
