Supplier Diversity Program History
ConocoPhillips was established in August of 2002 as a result of the merger of fully integrated oil companies Conoco Inc. and Phillips. Both companies had established supplier diversity programs. In May of 2012, ConocoPhillips repositioned as an independent exploration and production company divesting its downstream operations and assets and maintaining the business plan to execute an Advanced Supplier Diversity Program.
Our vision is to have a best in class Supplier Diversity Program that is in alignment with our company's culture and core values.
The mission of ConocoPhillips Supplier Diversity Program is to be the proponent of supply base management that facilitates inclusion of certified minority-owned, women-owned, small, aboriginal and indigenous businesses in a manner that stimulates the local economies where we live and work, and accomplishes our global procurement strategy.
