Supplier partnerships are essential to BC-S2C’s success
Blue Carbon S2C (BC-S2C) looks forward to partnering with suppliers. We value our supplier relationships and recognise our suppliers’ vital role in delivering value, innovation and supporting our operations, people and local communities. In doing so, we are working to tackle climate change and the many social, economic and environmental co-benefits from our ecosystem restoration and habitat creation work.
BC-S2C plans to spend millions of dollars on a diverse range of goods, materials and services from suppliers during our projects’ pre-development, facility construction and commissioning, in-field restoration/creation and operation stages, with a diverse supplier base across Australia and the Indo-Pacific. We are committed to building our network of local and Indigenous suppliers in the communities where we operate. Our objective is to put safety first, maximise value and minimise cost. We aim to ensure that our approach is fair and clearly understood by our potential suppliers. We have a strong preference for contracting with local companies where possible.
