As one of Australia’s largest coal producers, Glencore depends on and supports local businesses. We value all our suppliers, vendors and partners.
Our approach to procurement
About 80% of our annual $4.8b spend on goods and services is sourced from suppliers with operations in the regions in which our mines are located. Local suppliers provide key services to our business, including rehabilitation, equipment maintenance, facilities management and environmental monitoring, to name just a few.
This extends to our 11 coal mining operations in New South Wales and six coal mining operations in Queensland.
The supplies that are sourced outside the local or regional areas are those that are generally not available from local markets—for example diesel fuel, electricity and tyres.
Suppliers must provide competitive products and services and undergo Glencore pre-qualification. However, the emphasis is always on buying local where possible. For example, while the tyres we buy are not made locally, we engage local or regional suppliers for delivery, repairs and service.

- ensuring your invoices match the purchase order for price and quantity.
