South32 Sourcing

South32 is committed to building strong relationships with our suppliers locally, domestically and globally to seek innovative solutions with a focus on safety, quality and cost. 

Local procurement is a key focus area for South32. We believe in empowering our local communities to be able to provide for as much of our supply chain as possible.

In South Africa our Enterprise Development Program provides selected local entrepreneurs with the necessary infrastructure and skills to develop into viable enterprises, to enable them to feed into our supply chain.

Our Supplier Development Program in South Africa supports key local suppliers to meet our supply chain demand, while continuing to provide quality products and services.
