For suppliers

Our Objective

The objective of the Procurement and Supply Chain is to achieve value for money and maximise supplier performance in procurement activities to assist Fortescue in achieving its corporate objectives. The Procurement and Supply Chain works closely with new and existing suppliers to achieve these objectives.

For further information regarding our commitment and strategy, refer to the Procurement Policy.


Fortescue is committed to ensuring that its mining operations benefit local communities. Strategic Procurement and Supply Chain facilitates the fulfilment of this commitment by giving preference to suppliers who demonstrate either Local Content or Aboriginal Engagement.

For Local Content, the order of preference is for Pilbara, Western Australian and then Australian based suppliers.

For Aboriginal Engagement, preference will be given to suppliers that are Aboriginal owed, engage Aboriginal businesses (including native title groups) or provide other benefits to Aboriginal communities (employment, training).

Human Rights

Strategic Procurement and Supply Chain is committed to ensuring that there is no slavery or forced labour used in its suppliers’ operations or any of the direct suppliers to those suppliers.
