De Beers has a history of working with local governments and Aboriginal groups to create long-lasting socio-economic benefits to communities close to our operations.
We establish priorities for local training, employment and business opportunities. We work with our community partners to identify new areas of growth for local business.
We want to work with local, national and international companies that are capable of providing cost-competitive goods and services needed at our operations.
We want those companies to also create local opportunities.
