Supplier diversity is an area that is important for all businesses. It means taking steps to ensure that the businesses that supply your business are inclusive and diverse. Businesses that diversify their supply chain can experience unexpected positive add-on benefits, such as new ways of looking at product development and marketing, access to new markets and an enhanced business image.

  • Tips for improving supplier diversity:
  • Level the playing field rather than positively discriminating in favour of particular groups.
  • Consider how the diversity of the business community and wider society is reflected in your supply chain.
  • Ensure that the businesses that supply your organisation follow policies that live up to your own equality, diversity and inclusion standards.
