Vicinity engages a large number of suppliers to provide goods and services for our centres and corporate offices.
The majority of our total procurement spend goes towards operating our centres, for services such as waste management, cleaning, security, mechanical, landscaping and maintenance, vertical transport and essential services like energy, gas, heating and cooling, sewerage and water.
For our development projects and centre refurbishments, we engage builders, civil contractors, design consultants and tradesman. We also use information and telecommunication service providers and professional service consultants to service our offices and centres.
We recognise the need to reduce sustainability risks inherent in our supply chain and take an active approach to promote responsible practices with our suppliers. We also welcome the opportunity to proactively use our procurement decisions to drive positive outcomes in our local communities.
