Supplier Diversity

Our program encourages procurement opportunities for minority-owned, women-owned, and small businesses in a manner that:

  • Demonstrates our company's SPIRIT values
  • Promotes awareness among stakeholders throughout our business units, and  
  • Builds a sustainable supply chain that delivers value, reflects leading-edge innovation, and the diversity of the regions where we operate.

In 2014, our U.S. Supplier Diversity program yielded expenditures of more than $800MM with minority and women owned suppliers and more than $300MM in expenditures with small businesses.
