  • prompt payment through the supply chains; and
  • advertising subcontracting opportunities to a diverse supply chain.

Social

  • improving the physical and mental wellbeing of local people;
  • creating a diverse workforce for the delivery of services;
  • collaborating with the voluntary and community sectors;
  • monitoring labour standards through the supply chain; and
  • improving skills and access to digital technology.

Environmental
