ESTABLISHED TRACK RECORD OF BEING A TRUSTED CORPORATE PARTNER
Sourcing quality goods and services from local companies and contractors provides one of the best opportunities to create economic centres near operations, supporting sustainable development and building thriving communities.
Responsible and effective supply chain management can create a meaningful multiplier effect, through economic contribution and promoting improved governance standards through the supply chain.
There are two key priorities to our approach to supply chain management with which to effectively support sustainable development:
- Ensuring the safe, responsible and steady supply of the products and materials needed to operate
- Responsibly using our significant purchasing power as a lever to drive local and national businesses, entrepreneurs and to improve standards in product quality, safety, and environmental management
