Our operations depend on and support local businesses. We value all our suppliers, vendors and partners including those based locally.
Glencore’s diverse operations are largely located in rural and regional locations, generating significant economic and social benefits for the businesses and communities located near our sites.
We operate 23 mines in Australia. In 2022, we worked with 7,370 Queensland suppliers, spending $10.4 billion on goods and services. This directly translates to stronger local businesses and more regional jobs.
We source key supplies outside the regional area that are generally not available from local markets—for example diesel fuel, electricity, tyres, legal services and consultants.
However, the emphasis is always on supporting local where possible.
