Sustainable Procurement

Supply chains represent the people who do the work to supply the goods and services that we need to operate,the local communities whose needs and expectationsmust be understood and respected, and the environment that sustains our communities and provides the natural resources we need for our products. We choose to partner with suppliers who share our core values.

A Procurement Statement provides the framework under which Evolution procures goods and services and is aimed at ensuring the Company applies its adopted values (Safety, Excellence, Accountability and Respect) to procurement activities and that the outcomes reflect maximising value for the Company and our relationships with our suppliers.

Suppliers play a key role in helping to deliver on our corporate strategy. Our Supplier Code of Conduct outlines the expectations we have of our suppliers. Suppliers are required to be accountable for their actions and commit to ensuring they conduct their business in alignment with Evolution’s values and behaviours.

A Sustainable Procurement Framework is being developed which aims to ensure that sustainable procurement practices are embedded in our business, ensuring ESG standards are maintained and continuously improved throughout the procurement lifecycle.

Evolution continues to work in partnership with our supply chain to continuously improve our approach, develop sustainable practices and deliver value to our business and communities. We strive to work with suppliers and contractors who share our values and are driven to improve our supply chain’s social and ethical footprint.

Local and Regional Procurement

Our Approach

Procuring goods and services from local and regional suppliers helps share the economic value in the communities in which we operate. Progress is monitored by tracking direct procurement spend (paid by Evolution) and indirect spend (paid by subcontractors to Evolution). Our approach is based on local economic procurement decisions and processes that have significant and positive impacts on local economies, with associated benefits to businesses and communities in the regions of our sites.

Our local and regional procurement practices focus on:

  • Promoting an open and shared culture across all our workplaces
  • Providing ongoing training and education
  • Upholding equal opportunities, diversity and anti-discriminatory practices
  • Hiring employees, contractors and suppliers from the local community

We engage with our local communities. This includes hosting information evenings with our key contractors and their communities to discuss subcontracting, supply and employment opportunities on various projects.

Our Performance

In FY21, we spent A$129 million directly with local and regional suppliers, including A$100 million with local suppliers, a 27% increase compared to FY20. Our increase in this spend is due to our efforts to more actively identify opportunities to include local, regional and Indigenous suppliers.
