  3. The definition used for ‘significant locations of operation’.

Our Sectors / businesses have sustainable procurement practices and standards that they apply when engaging with the Supply Chain. As an international organisation, Babcock defines ‘local’ as UK-based suppliers and they account for 71% of our spend.

We support a stable local economy, and maintain good community relations by actively engaging with SMEs: 29% of our suppliers are SMEs and c3,000 are based in the UK.
