Total proportion of spending on local suppliers
Note: Local suppliers are considered as those operating from the country of operation. They are classified as such by having a local address and, where appropriate, further registration as may be required by local authorities to recognise these companies officially (NINEA number for example in Senegal).

New supplier screening
|Impacts on society||22||33||80|
Note: Supplier screening data is only available from 2014 onwards.
Note: This data shows the percentage of significant new suppliers (any that require approval from Cairn’s Contracts Committee) that were screened for corporate responsibility risks in four different areas as shown, i.e. environmental, impacts on society, labour practices and human rights. This data is compiled by reviewing Cairn’s Contracts Committee records to identify new suppliers that Cairn selected during the reporting year. Tender and contract documentation for those suppliers are then reviewed to identify which CR risks are covered in the screening process for each one.
In 2015, 75% of suppliers that were not screened were data processing companies and suppliers of materials for which CR issues were not considered a particular risk.
In 2016, 18 out of 20 new suppliers were screened for CR risks; the remaining two (10%) were international suppliers of IT/software related services for which CR issues were not considered a particular risk.
