Supporting the local economy
We aim to source as much as possible from local businesses. Many of our critical supply partners based in Newcastle and the broader Hunter Region.
Through our local procurement strategy, we make a substantial economic contribution to the prosperity of our region. In FY22, our total local spend was $26.5 million. Additionally, $8.2 million was spent within the rest of New South Wales, bringing our total spend within Australia to $34.7 million (99.5% of our total procurement expenditure).
