Creating opportunity through supplier diversity and inclusion
Supplier Diversity and Inclusion at Covestro
Through our supplier diversity and inclusion program, we aim to build strong, collaborative relationships with forward-thinking suppliers who share our vision to make the world a brighter place. By giving diverse firms the opportunity to grow with us, we hope to pave the way for strategic business partnerships that allow us to better serve our customers, strengthen our culture of innovation and promote local economic growth.
"We often look to our suppliers and Business Partners to bring new ideas and fresh insights to the table.
And we believe that everyone should have a seat at that table."
Our North American supplier diversity and inclusion program is geared toward small, disadvantaged and / or diverse firms, including certified women-, minority-, LGBTQ-, disabled, veteran, disabled veteran- and HUBZone-owned businesses.
All of our suppliers must meet the same strategic qualification requirements of Innovation, Cost Transformation, Reliability and Sustainability.
Your organization may qualify for our supplier diversity and inclusion program if it meets the following criteria. The company must:
- Be certified by a recognized third-party organization, such as those listed below:
- Produce a commodity / service that Covestro purchases: https://www.covestro.com/en/company/profile/procurement/organization-and-strategy
- Have the capacity to meet our procurement needs
If your organization meets the above criteria and has an interest in competing for Covestro’s business, we invite you to register via our Supplier Diversity and Inclusion Portal:
Our Supplier Diversity and Inclusion Portal serves as a hub of supplier information, providing new opportunities to do business together. Your registration in the portal does not guarantee business; however, when we are in need of a product or a service, we may use this portal as one resource to find additional providers.
