Sandfire recognises we can make a contribution to economic development through the procurement of local goods and services. This contribution has the potential to create economic multipliers and boost supplier capacity. We measure our spend data which is communicated to our external stakeholders though our Annual and Sustainability Reports.
Community investment, local procurement and employment remains a strategic priority for the business. As we move into new jurisdictions and navigate different project phases our approach will continue to meet the specific needs of our host communities. We are committed to engaging with our host communities and governments on appropriate definitions of local. Future sustainability targets will be localised and aligned to the goals of host communities, local government and economic development agendas.
We aim to provide sustainable employment and career development opportunities for Aboriginal people. Our Aboriginal Employment Policy sets out our commitment to the employment of Aboriginal people and the initiatives through which we demonstrate this.
See our Annual and Sustainability Report for our latest initiatives and data.
