What does this mean?
Expand the participation of suppliers led by minority groups in the supply chain, stimulating entrepreneurship and contributing to the economic and social development of these groups.
We believe in the power of affirmative buying. Accordingly we need to build new partnership relations, be it through the development of existing suppliers or the attraction of new ones.
Our diversity strategy permeates five dimensions: gender, race and ethnic origin, persons with disabilities, LGBTI+ and generations.
Power of buying
Our purchasing policy has an immense power to influence how suppliers and supply chains operate.
What is the future vision?
By 2030 we will have leveraged the diversity of our suppliers significantly by stimulating entrepreneurship among minority groups.
