Our Suppliers

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 FY23, our total local spend was $28.2 million. Additionally, $10.5 million was spent within the rest of Australia, bringing our total spend within Australia to $38.7 million (99.5% of our total procurement expenditure). 

We report our annual procurement figures in our annual Sustainability Report and have outlined our goals and commitments for our procurement practices in our Procurement Management Approach document
