Organizations should footnote their definition of "local" and all assumptions used. See usage guidance for further information.

Usage Guidance

  • Individual organizations' definitions of "local" will depend on their business model and impact objective. For example, if the purpose is economic development, "local" may be defined within geo-political boundaries. If the focus is around reducing emissions, then "local" may be defined based on specific distance factors.
  • Organizations that purchase different types of products/services should consider reporting against each type of different product/service separately.
  • Organizations may wish to use this metric in conjunction with Supplier Organizations: Local (PI6385).
