Wesfarmers Limited Sustainability Report

Companies have faced unprecedented disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic. Most companies have had their operations brought to a halt, while others had to invent ways of preventing and mitigating the challenges brought about by the pandemic. Wesfarmers is an example of those companies affected and forced to become innovative to continue operating.  Wesfarmers Limited is an Australian listed enterprise with an extensive product and services portfolio. During the pandemic, Wesfarmers has been forced to improve its financial and non-financial reporting keeping the stakeholders informed. The non-financial disclosure is a new concept, but companies continue to make it formal and essential, primarily because it tells of its performance (Deegan, 2014, p. 1-5). Some of the non-financial reporting done by companies include materiality, integration, and sustainability reports. Wesfarmers company has been working towards keeping the shareholders informed of its performance by using sustainability reporting, which has been achieved through multiple communication channels.  

                                                                                                I.            Changes in sustainability reporting by Wesfarmers

During the pandemic, the stakeholders need to be kept on the know. Communication remains an essential element between the companies and the stakeholders. Both financial and non-financial disclosure come in handy during the COVID-19 pandemic. The information is essential to all the stakeholders for decision-making purposes. For example, potential and existing shareholders make investment decisions based on the published financial and non-financial reporting. Non-financial reporting for all companies has been affected, and companies are being forced to change the way they carry out non-financial corporate disclosures.

Wesfarmers, unlike in the past where it carried out the non-financial reporting semi-annually and annually the company has been forced to disclose the non-financial information in unregular ways such as weekly and monthly. During the pandemic, the company has released various materiality reports in 2020. The reports have been posted on the company sustainability website (https://sustainability.wesfarmers.com.au/) launched in 2019 (Wesfarmers, 2019).

The sustainability information posted in the previous year’s differs significantly with the non-financial information being reported in 2020. Sustainability reports from 2019 focused on the following significant themes; climate change resilience, diversity, and inclusion, community, ethical sourcing, and safety. Wesfarmers limited focused on introducing a climate change policy and setting emissions targets for its various division s by 2025. The company’s leadership also reported on its achievement on gender balance by having 45% of the working population being female and noting that there was room to strengthen balance in managerial and senior executive positions. Wesfarmers Limited has been more concerned with the community through its contribution of about $72 million to society. The company also focused on improved transparency and responsible sourcing of products. The company also boasted a 1.5 percent reduction in recordable injury frequency (Wesfarmers, 2019, p. 74).

In 2020, the quarterly sustainability report majored in the company response to calamities and pandemics, which have impacted the various stakeholders. Before COVID-19, Australia was faced with bushfire, and Wesfarmers limited was actively involved in putting off the fires, and during the pandemic, the company has contributed over $4 million to affected people. Wesfarmers limited contributed toward the bushfire through national Bunning’s fundraisers and direct donations (Wesfamers, 2020, p. 1). Wesfarmers businesses were positioned in a way they could provide local communities by effective supply chain and on-ground presence.

Wesfarmers limited acknowledges that it has faced numerous challenges during the pandemic and has been forced to be decisive in leadership.  The company says that it has been engaged in various measures to curb the coronavirus pandemic.  The pandemic provided managerial challenges as the company was required by the government to adopt to the health guidelines such as hygiene and physical distance protocols. It meant that the company’s management has to develop standard measures to implement the given protocols. The Covid-19 situation also presented an environmental challenge, including disposing of materials such as face mask by the employees and the company staff. It also meant that the company would not hold mass meetings with various stakeholders resulting in governance problems. The pandemic also resulted in social challenges. The company was forced to close down some of its divisions’ retail shops, meaning it had to send employees home and maintain wages to caution them against the pandemic (Wesfamers, 2020, p 1).

In the sustainability report, Wesfarmers limited information on environmental, social, and governance effects of COVID-19 and how the company has responded to these effects.  Wesfarmers’ sustainability report has shown how the company has helped the various shareholders, such as the employees directly affected by the COVID-19. The company has given paid leave to all its employees, allowing those impacted by the situation (Wesfamers, 2020, p. 2). The company has also provided active communication of its change in supply chain operations to keep the suppliers and consumers informed about the changes and how they will affect each party.

The change in frequency or reporting and the sustainability reports’ information are the two significant changes that Wesfarmers have put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has improved its financial reporting to keep the shareholders, employees, and suppliers updated about its financial position.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is evident that all stakeholders had an interest in information on the steps the company would take to prevent and mitigate the severe threat of business operations.  Thus, the company put a lot of focus on financial and non-financial reporting to keep the stakeholders involved.

    II.            Reasons for Change in Non-Financial Reporting By Wesfarmers And Its Benefits

Non-financial reporting is a relatively new concept to the organization, but the idea has been practiced for a long time, primarily through Corporate social responsibility (CSR). According to Deegan (2014, p. 273-274), Stakeholder accounting theory states that all stakeholders in an organization have a right to be treated fairly, and management should manage the firm for the benefit of all stakeholders. Thus, changing the sustainability reporting for Wesfarmers during the pandemic has been to the stakeholders’ benefits.

The ethical branch of stakeholders’ theory holds that all parties involved have the right to be provided with information even if not in use. Ethically, the management have a responsibility to notify the various stakeholders of what is happening within and without the organization (Deegan, 2014 p. 275). The change in reporting during the Covid-19 situation by the Wesfamers limited is in accordance to the stakeholders’ theory, which requires the management to treat all parties fairly (Deegan, 2014 p. 275). A change in the reporting during the crisis helps inform the parties of all the company’s activities during the pandemic. The information helps the various parties in making the various parties.  Wesfarmers has changed its sustainability reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep the various update during the uncertain times. The company has increased its reporting for financial and non-financial information and kept the various parties involved in various COVID-19 related operations.

i.                    Internal Benefits of Changing Non-financial Reporting During The COVID-19 Pandemic

Sustainability reporting for Wesfarmers during the COVID-19 pandemic is essential as it has both internal and external benefits. Sustainability reporting during the Covid-19 has increased the understanding of risks and opportunities (Bedenik, and Barišić, 2019). Through the frequent reporting during the Covid-19 pandemic, the various stakeholders continue to see the risks facing the business and opportunity available during the COVID-19. For example, some of the risks facing Wesfarmers are business closure due to the adverse effects on the virus on people. Some of the opportunities are improved supply chain and new operational activities for divisions such as Kmart and Target. 

The change in financial data reporting increases the link between financial and non-financial performance for Wesfarmers limited (Bedenik, and Barišić, 2019). Wesfarmers can now be able to link its non-financial and financial performance. Covid-19 has impacted the social and environmental issues facing the Wesfarmers limited and, consequently, has impacted the company’s financial performance in the past six months.

Sustainability reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic has influenced Wesfarmers’ long-term management strategy, business plans, and strategy (Bedenik, and Barišić, 2019). The change in reporting during the COVID-19pandemic is likely going to impact reporting for financial and non-financial reporting.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Wesfarmers had to change its sustainability reporting for benchmarking and assessing sustainability performance with respect to voluntary initiatives, laws, and policy to deal with the pandemic (Bedenik, and Barišić, 2019). Wesfarmers, like many other companies during the pandemic, has been forced to improve on their reporting for benchmarking its performance. The company has been doing so as a voluntary initiative to keep all parties involved in the company performance during the current COVID-19 crisis.

Wesfarmers has changed its sustainability reporting to keep its stakeholders informed during the pandemic’s uncertain times, thus avoiding being implicated in publicized environmental, governance, and social failures (Bedenik, and Barišić, 2019). All public companies are required to keep all stakeholders informed, especially on the health (social) and governance during the pandemic. Thus, the company has to use the various channels such as the leading media and the company’s websites and social media to keep all stakeholders involved and informed. Parties such as customers, shareholders, employees, and suppliers need to be continuously informed about all the social, environmental, and governance issues during the pandemic. It helps all involved parties in making decisions pertaining to the business.

                     i.            External Benefits for Change in Non-financial Reporting for Wesfarmers During the Pandemic

 Sustainability reporting during crisis help mitigate negative social, environmental, and governance impact.  Wesfarmers help mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 impact on the various stakeholders by notifying the stakeholders on the various steps being taken by the company and how it would affect each of the key players. 

Changing the way of reporting non-financial information has helped Wesfarmers improve brand reputation and loyalty (Bedenik, and Barišić, 2019). Sustainability reporting shows how the company is concerned about its operation’s social and environmental implications besides the economic effects. Wesfarmers have actively been involved in helping the community deal with the social and environmental challenges during the COVID-19pandemic, improving its relations with the community and improving its reputation and brand loyalty among the people has impacted.

Change in sustainability reporting for Wesfarmers enables external stakeholders to understand its real value, tangible and intangible assets (Bedenik, and Barišić, 2019).  Sustainability reports help the stakeholders understand the true value of a company, especially during the pandemic. Financial information does not reflect the company’s true value, especially when it comes to intangible assets such as brand loyalty.

 Sustainability reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic by Wesfarmers has demonstrated how the company influences and is influenced by sustainable development expectations (Bedenik, and Barišić, 2019). For example, for any company to succeed, it must be able to influence the social and environmental factors, and so do these factors influence the sustainability development of a company and society.

Thus, by changing the way its sustainability reporting, the company has been able to keep the various interested parties in the know of the changes taking place within and without the company’s environmental (Bedenik, and Barišić, 2019). The various players now understand the risks that Wesfarmers continue to face during the pandemic and the opportunities that have available at the same time. Keeping the stakeholders informed helps these parties make informed decisions about the business both in the short and long term.

 III.            Information needed by the Stakeholders To Advocate for Effective Response to COVID-19 by companies

COVID-19 is today highlighting the necessity of the stakeholders, which has occurred barely a year since most industries and businesses shifted from a focus on the shareholders. Amidst the pandemic, inadequate consideration paid to the stakeholders during the process of making decisions is backfiring on several companies. Even is sustainability reporting is not a mandatory issue in Australia, many companies still report on environmental and social performance to meet their disclosure obligations annually, assist with the engagement of the stakeholders as well as demonstrate the commitment to corporate social responsibility.

i.                    Financial Information

The stakeholders need to understand the financial performance of the companies during the pandemic. In the case where there is no transparency, there is no trust, credit, investment, and ultimately no growth. Financial reporting is a significant building block for sustainable development economically, foreign investment, and financial intermediation, especially during a crisis such as COVID-19. 

During this crisis, the quality of governance and corporate financial reporting is essential, especially for the global economy’s well-functioning, and so is the balance and checks to communicate and prepare the information to the stakeholders. For the stakeholders to advocate for an effective response to the pandemic by companies, they need transparent information on how the pandemic is affecting their business in terms of risks, internal controls, financial position, business continuity, and liquidity (Saraite-Sariene, 2020, p. 5). Such information helps the stakeholders to determine what they expect of the company concerning COVID-19 response. The reporting should be of high quality, and transparency should be adhered to no matter the consequences as that would be the ethical thing to do.

The financial position that the company is in should be disclosed to the shareholders in line with the Australian disclosure laws. All the ASX-listed companies are required to continue complying with the law regarding disclosure in the circumstances relating to COVID-19.

ii.                  Non-financial Information

Materiality assessment and reports are vital.  Governance is at crisis during the pandemic and the importance of creating a communication plan to ensure vital stakeholders receive the vital information. Thus, there is a need for the creation of a crisis management team. The crisis management team helps the management handle the pandemic by communicating all necessary information to stakeholders. The team is responsible for understanding the pandemic and helping the organization cope with the situation. Thus, the responsibility includes understanding the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that face the organization about COVID-19. The team is responsible for consulting with authorities such as the government and other bodies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) to have the right protocols on how to deal with the pandemic. 

Stakeholders need to be provided with every information coming in about the coronavirus, such as the number of active cases and deaths and the gaps existing that need to be filled. In case the outbreak continues, stakeholders should be provided with information regarding how it will continue to pose health risks to the employees. Such information is essential to the employees since they can help the companies develop the best strategies to minimize the disease’s contractions. A better contingency plan can also be formulated if such information is presented to the stakeholders.

The stakeholders also need information on the challenges that the company is facing and measures it has in place to help overcome the challenges and respond to COVID-19 effectively. The company’s stakeholders have an obligation to disclose every issue that it faces to its stakeholders, especially the employees and shareholders. According to deontology ethical theory, it is ethically correct if individuals follow their obligations to society or one another (Broad, 2014, p.206). Transparency should be one of the company’s values. An organization that adheres to deontology theory produces consistent decisions since they are based on the organization’s set goals.

For the stakeholders to advocate for an effective response to the COVID-19 pandemic, they should receive information on challenges such as lack of enough resources like space to maintain social distance among the employees to reduce the virus’s spread. Stakeholders can come up with solutions and plans to help the company overcome such challenges and, in the end, ensure that the company responds to the pandemic appropriately (Saraite-Sariene et al., 2020, p.12).

During these difficult times, senior management in most companies is focused on the immediate effect of COVID-19 on the economy. COVID-19 action plans, therefore, need to be widened to encompass economic recovery and public health. Ways in which the company can support community health and healthcare services is through providing sick offs without cutting pay and even flexibility in working hours to ensure that contact is reduced and offer the employees time to take care of the families. This is corporate social responsibility.

The stakeholders, such as investors, require information regarding supplies for production and the details of products’ delivery to the customers. Such information is vital as it ensures that the responsible stakeholders follow up to ensure that the response of the company is positive amidst the pandemic. For example, during this pandemic, businesses may be in dire financial situations leading to delay in the supply of raw material and products. Responsible investors can help to block anything that might look like exploitation of the crisis by companies. Investors can help validate and encourage responsible leadership and governance from the top, fostering resilience and discouraging behaviors that are suboptimal by some individual companies (Bedenik and Barišić, 2019, p 6). Investors have a crucial role in advocating for an effective response by the company to COVID-19, especially since nobody can manage the crisis independently. 

iii.                Social and Environmental Aspects

Non-financial reporting constitutes the social and environmental aspects of a business, the area of human rights and employees, bribery measures, and anti-corruption, and it also outlines the business’s model, outcomes, number of policies that supervisory bodies and management implement, and the policy risks on the mentioned issues. The modern economy of business is facing demands that are clearer for non-financial information disclosure that include disclosure of both social and environmental business aspects, that is, sustainability or business practices that are sustainable (Lungu et al., 2009, p.7)

I believe that companies should focus on the disclosure of both the E and S. The performance of a business is determined as a function of the balance between social, economic, and ecological aspects of its activities. Undoubtedly, companies engage in their business activities in an environment with a variety of relationships and interrelations (Wilcox, 2019, p. 1). Therefore, a company should not be viewed only as an owner’s instrument but as a unity that influences several groups supposed to function together.

It is encouraged that public companies maintain high-quality disclosure regarding how they are responding to the situation during COVID-19. Disclosure should be created such that it allows the investors to evaluate the current as well as the expected effect of COVID-19 through the management’s eyes. The company should proactively and regularly reevaluate and update their disclosures as the circumstances and facts of the pandemic change.

i.                    Information to Stakeholders for Investment Decision Making

The investors should be provided with information regarding the impact of obtaining assistance by the government under the COVID-19 relief and aid and the considerations related to the ability of the company to continue as a going concern. Most companies have had to make a variety of adjustments in their operations to respond to the impact of COVID-19, including dealing with distribution chains and supply adjustments, transitioning their employees to remote working, and suspending or modifying operations to ensure they comply with the guidelines of health as stipulated by the WHO. The extent to which the adjustments or changes would affect investment is essential. Therefore, the company should consider disclosing such information to the investors as it is its obligation to do so and is the ethical thing to do to allow the investors to make their decisions.

In the sustainability reporting context, disclosure of non-financial information of CSR must consider the stakeholders’ needs as a target group for certain information (Bedenik, and arišić, 2019, p.4). Research has identified that investors today are in support of non-financial reporting. Most of the investors agree that sustainable returns require a sharp focus on the environmental and social factors as well as on corporate governance.

Stakeholders require knowing the material benefits and risks that are embedded in the disclosure of non-financial information by companies. Investors believe that through understanding the benefits and risks, they are able to escape the downside and embrace the upside in valuation, which flows from business activities that are non-financial.  The social information that investors need to make their investment decisions includes labor practices, human rights, product responsibility, and community/society. A company’s social dimension is usually founded on the modern corporation‘s concept as a legal form created by the society with a responsibility to conform to the society’s laws (Herriott, 2016, p. 169).

Non-financial information today is meeting the different stakeholders’ needs related to accountability and legitimacy (Herzig and Schaltegger, 2006, p. 302). Environmental issues that companies are supposed to disclose to the investors include water and energy use, air pollution, and emission of greenhouse gas, among others. This information is very crucial to the investors, mainly because they know how much risk they are likely to incur if they invest in a company. For example, a company with a high emission of greenhouse and reduced water and energy conservation measure is not good to invest in since it has more significant long-run financial impacts due to legal issues. An investor would have to weigh his or her options keenly and make the decision wisely in such a scenario.

The stakeholders require information on assets that are stranded, as that is a risk that concerns them greatly. For example, for the investors to determine how much holdings they will have, they need to know the risk of stranded assets. Surveys indicate that investors decrease their holdings or monitor them closely due to such kind of risks. The non-financial performance of businesses plays a vital role in the investors’ decisions to invest. Investors see financial benefits that are long-term in companies with sustainable reporting on financial information and those with high environmental and social ratings. Investors believe that there are lower risks of investing in such companies (Herzig and Schaltegger, 2006, p. 314). They know that transparency and focus on the social and environmental factors have quantifiable and real financial effects in the long run.

ii.                  Corporate Media Reporting

Corporate reporting today has become open-ended and more complicated despite the audit standards and disclosure rules. This has resulted from the introduction of the Environmental, social, and governance practices (ESG) or sustainability (Herzig and Schaltegger, 2006, p. 301). Reporting of these aspects is considered essential. The change in stakeholder’s demography, social media, and new technology expounds the corporate reporting’s audiences and access means. The most effective media to communicate non-financial information during the COVID-19 pandemic is a combination of social media, company’s websites, and through media mainstreams like television and radios. Given some people are working from home, mainstream media will be sufficient. For potential investors, all the platforms are excellent and effective to pass the information. COVID-19 has made social media the best option for communication today; hence it is also an effective corporate reporting media.

iv.                Lessons

Wesfarmers Limited is committed to ensuring that it complies with the continuous and general disclosure obligations contained in ASX listing rules and the Corporations Act 2001 related to the market information and proving the stakeholders and market with information that is timely about its activities. During this COVID-19 pandemic, Wesfarmers has been keeping the people informed, especially on its financial matters.  The company understands the importance of keeping its stakeholders informed and why it is essential for the shareholders to participate in decision-making. Wesfarmers also discloses its information on the environmental, governance, and social aspects to the people.

The fact that Wesfarmers has maintained some sustainable reporting is something that the accountants can learn from. The accounting professionals should understand that Environmental, social, and governance practices (ESG) have become a core business issue; hence they should embrace it in their profession (Hazelton and Haigh, 2010, p. 162). The Certified Public Accountants firms can use the standards used by Wesfarmers as a suitable criterion to help other companies that seek assurance or need assistance over-reporting. Therefore, the CPA firms would offer the accounting professional training standards like those in Wesfarmers to make them competitive.

The accounting profession has a crucial role to play in contributing to the understanding of businesses’ sustainability and focusing more on the adoption of standards that Wesfarmers use to the perspective where there is a connection that can be made between financial value, non-financial disclosure/reporting, and sustainable worth to the entity.

v.                  Recommendation

During and after the COVID-19 pandemic, Wesfarmers need to implement some changes in sustainability reporting. Wesfarmers need to reexamine its materiality assessment and how it can be integrated into Enterprise Risk Management (ERM).  The need to integrate the two has been pushed by the financial impact on non-financial social, environmental, and governance issues that have arisen during the Covid-19 crisis. Wesfarmers can also use a materiality assessment to evaluate the relationship between a company’s effects on a given sustainability issue and how the issue impacts the business. Wesfarmers need to determine what information the stakeholders require to make effective judgment of its response to the pandemic.

Wesfarmers need to increase the connectivity between sustainability reporting and financial reports and performance. The COVID-19 situation has revealed the impact of non-financial ESG issues on the enterprise’s financial performance.  Wesfarmers’ sustainability reports provided information on how the company responded to challenges of material significance.  Wesfarmers is also supposed to take inspiration from climate disclosure to show the company resilience. For example, for Wesfarmers, the COVID-19 crisis has increased its attention to risk factors such as the health risks to its stakeholders, operation disruptions, and operational flexibility.

vi.                Conclusion

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented disruption for most organizations, which has also affected how companies carry out reporting responsibilities.  Companies like Wesfarmers have found a better way of integrated, comparable, and standardized reporting, which has increased access to information. The pandemic has brought to light new information needed to strengthen decision-making, risk management, and overall performance in the long-term. Wesfarmers improved its reporting during the COVID-19 period by increasing the frequency of sustainability reporting and timely quarterly and semi-annually financial and non-financial reporting. The sustainability reporting of the company during the COVID-19 crisis focused on how the company responded to the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues brought about by the pandemic. The change in sustainability reporting has enabled Wesfarmers limited understand the available opportunity and risks brought about by COVID-19. There are many other internal and external benefits for change sustainability reporting during the pandemic. To advocate the effectiveness of a company’s response to COVID-19 issues, the stakeholders need to know the company’s financial and non-financial aspects. The stakeholders require knowing the social aspects such as human rights, labor practices, other aspects, and environmental aspects like water and energy use. Therefore, the company should focus on both the social and environmental aspects during disclosure since it affects investors’ decisions. All corporate reporting media should be used to disclose information regarding COVID-19 by the company.
