Covestro LLC recently announced the launch of its North American supplier diversity program, intended to build on its commitment to create a more diverse, inclusive and innovative culture.
“We believe that our supply base should reflect our company values and the diversity of the communities where we live and work,” said Stacey Vigliotti, head of business procurement services. “Our supplier diversity program paves the way by giving us a platform to connect with smaller, historically disadvantaged firms that share our passion for sustainability and innovation.”
That initial connection is made through an online portal, which acts as a hub of supplier information.
“Through this program, we hope to forge strategic alliances that allow us to better serve our customers, strengthen our culture of innovation and promote the growth of diverse businesses,” said Micah Caporali, supplier diversity manager.
