Building a sustainable supply chain

The step change in Tullow’s size and the scope of our major projects is driving a business imperative to build a sustainable supply chain.

2011/2012 priorities

Building a sustainable supply chain is closely aligned with living our values, which capture the way we do business in Tullow. We plan early and effectively so that we can meet peak supply chain requirements in a sustainable way. We include in this the impact of our supply chain on local communities and the environment of our major projects. We work in a collaborative manner and build partnerships, not just all along our supply chain – we also reach out to local suppliers and work with them to build capacity for our industry. We have the skills and appetite to foster entrepreneurship in others and help local people and business to develop new enterprises and become part of the oil and gas industry in their country.

  • Review master contract agreements to embed EHS standards and mandate local content requirements;
  • Develop a supply chain strategy that minimises unsustainable practices and reduces risk and waste;
  • Continue with our ‘Closing the Gap’ programme which is focused on helping individuals and local businesses to enter the oil and gas industry supply chain;
  • Develop a business incubation centre pilot, in conjunction with local communities and organisations, to provide a facility for local business to improve their management and administrative capability; and
  • Improve our reporting to provide greater transparency in contracting processes and supplier contracts as well as to enable us to track and record local content.
