Driving excellence through diversity

Supplier Diversity is all about recognizing the value diverse, small and local businesses bring to the service we provide. PG&E is committed to an inclusive supply chain. Diverse suppliers include small business enterprises (SBE) and enterprises owned by women (WBE), minorities (MBE), service-disabled veterans (DVBE), and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals (LGBTBE).

For decades, PG&E's Supplier Diversity Program has supported local economic vitality, innovation and excellence as well as enhanced the quality of service for our customers. We support the growth of small and diverse businesses by offering technical assistance training and sharing competitive opportunities for becoming part of our supply chain. Read our Supplier Diversity Economic Impact Report (PDF, 5.18 MB) to learn about our program's billions of dollars impact on local economic vitality.

As we look ahead to meet the challenges of an evolving industry, diverse suppliers are key to supporting our mission to deliver safe, reliable, affordable clean energy to our customers and communities. We are incredibly proud of our work in this area. It strengthens our supply chain with better business solutions, shapes stronger communities through economic development and helps build a better future for us all.
