Local business, local suppliers

We work with a range of contractors, sub-contractors and consultants across all areas of our operations.

We work to a set of values which guide and support our dealings with all of our stakeholders including customers, suppliers and the community in which we operate. We aim to further support the local economy through engaging, where possible, local businesses and contractors to undertake project and maintenance works.

Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets out the expectations and standards our suppliers must adhere to in order to do business with us.
