—Highlight— Addressing modern slavery risks We continue to work with suppliers to identify and address any possible exposures to human rights risks and exploitation in our supply chains. We submitted our second Modern Slavery Statement to the Australian Federal Government in December 2021, again outlining how we work to identify, manage, and mitigate the specific risks of modern slavery in our operations and supply chains. We did not identify any instances of modern slavery in our operations or supply chains in FY21, and we remain vigilant in monitoring slavery risks. We participate in regular forums, with both suppliers and other industry leaders to share learnings and knowledge on mitigating these risks. Further, we maintain an independent whistleblower hotline for those wanting to raise issues, including modern slavery issues. Our next Modern Slavery Statement will be submitted to the Australian Government by December 2022. Read our FY21 Modern Slavery Statement, transurban.com/ modern-slavery-fy21

We also have specific targets on our other projects in the Greater Washington Area for both Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) and Small Women and Minority (SWaM) owned businesses, with a combined goal of USD116 million on the Fredericksburg Extension an increase of almost 10% and USD110 million on the 495 Extension Project. Both projects currently have contracted USD146 million to DBEs and SWaMs. In Melbourne, our West Gate Tunnel Project spent more than $7 million across 46 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, and more than $6 million on social enterprises, with 45 engaged to provide goods and services. 1 In Sydney, the WestConnex M4–M5 Link Project has now spent more than $62 million with accredited Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, including recruitment. NorthConnex, in Sydney, which opened in FY21, continues to support employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through our procurement of incident response and maintenance services for the next five years.
In Brisbane, we began investigating opportunities to expand both direct and indirect opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, and other, social enterprises. We are reviewing the existing market and researching Queensland demographics to identify opportunities that will maximise value (for participants, local communities and our own sustainability targets) and also to identify challenges we will need to address to progress this action.
