Supplier diversity creates inclusive opportunity for  development as well bringing ideation, creativity and commercial benefits. By engaging with diverse suppliers we bring increased perspectives to the work that we do, which boosts innovation, creativity, competitive advantage and reinforces fair culture values  – a much more inclusive approach to supply chains and good procurement practice.
