We invest in building sustainable working relationships with all our procurement partners.

Responsible procurement

Our suppliers play an essential role in helping us to deliver Australia’s clean energy future.

We invest in building sustainable working relationships with all our business partners, and focus on: 

  • entering into agreements that deliver value for all parties
  • adhering to policies and processes that support effective operations
  • continually improving the user experience throughout the supply chain

Our Business Ethics Guide and Code of Ethics and Conduct outline the principles, standards and values that guide our decisions and behaviours. You must comply with these guidelines when working with us.

Modern slavery

New suppliers undergo a pre-qualification process to identify potential commercial, reputational, environmental and modern slavery risks. Existing suppliers also undergo periodic risk assessment and must demonstrate compliance to human rights and fair employment practices in accordance with international standards.

Our Modern Slavery Statement outlines the measures we take to manage and mitigate the risks of modern slavery across our operations.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses through our supply chain is a key commitment of our Reconciliation Action Plan. As a proud member of Supply Nation since November 2018, we have partnered with a number of Indigenous suppliers, and this will continue to grow over time.

COVID-19 precautions

We have taken precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and ask you to be mindful of our approach to managing the pandemic.  Please adhere to our health and safety guidelines when visiting Transgrid sites.
