“Significant Suppliers” means organizations that are generally under contract and constitute a significant portion of total operating spend, that are difficult to replace without significant effort, as they are relied upon to provide essential goods and/or services to Fast Printing, and organizations that pose the highest level of social, environmental or economic risk.
