Responsible Business

By today’s definition, good business governance requires planning for long term viability and taking responsibility for the effects our business decisions make on our global and local environments, communities and economies.

Universities are seen to be leading organisations, operating as best practice institutions in education, research and good governance. 

Tertiary institutions also provide the perfect environment and opportunities for students to flex their consumer voices and demand that their institutions meet globally aligned trends and expectations for sustainable goals and outcomes.

Tertiary Access Group members are an important interface between the tertiary students experience on campus and the wider world. TAG members are not only there to engage and support students but to provide vital services that underpin a students day to day requirements on campus.


TAG provides many resources to support and assist its members in all aspects of these operational requirements. From shared member initiatives and operational guides such as sustainable event management, efficient office management, food waste management to preferred 'green' rated suppliers and contracts, ethical and environmental purchasing protocols and more.

TAG's most successful achievement in supporting good governance and ethical, sustainable procurement is the TAG Flag - a comprehensive best practice questionnaire and profiling tool .

The TAG FLAG Rated against worldwide best practice, the program requires all TAG suppliers to complete a comprehensive questionnaire process. Questionnaire answers are rated and the data used to compile profiling reports associated with each company and their products, highlighting important operational practices and product metrics. 

The profiling reports are designed to assist TAG members to improve their own good governance and mitigate operational risks by understanding the operating practices of the business partners they engage with. Comparison charts within the program also provide TAG members with a snap shot of how competing companies and products rate against each other.
