Lendlease has four guiding principles which define the way we conduct business: safety; sustainability; diversity and inclusion; and customer focus.  

We work with thousands of suppliers around the world that share our values and principles to help ensure the places we create are incident and injury free for our people and the public, while also helping us maintain a sustainable and internationally-competitive supply chain. Facilitating diversity in our procurement strategy allows us to tap into the widest possible pool of suppliers in order to deliver high quality outcomes for our customers.
Our suppliers help us create places that prosper. It's important to us that our suppliers share our values, meet or exceed our minimum standards, and understand our business.

Our Supplier Diversity strategy drives our engagement with suppliers from large to medium companies to sole traders.  We are increasing our relationships with small business, Indigenous owned, woman owned, and minority owned businesses.

The diverse range of suppliers and subcontractors strengthens our ability to deliver quality projects, enhances the capabilities of the small business community, and fosters a healthy business environment. As well as achieving measurable social impacts, supplier diversity drives a range of business benefits, including sustainability, flexibility, innovation and value.

In Australia, in particular, our Elevate RAP goals mean we are working with Indigenous partners to formalise the approach to procurement relationships, with a five year program of growth.
