As a part of the US Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Framework for Action, a clear ambition was set to increase supplier diversity across the company, linking directly to bp’s wider ambition on responsible business and improving people’s lives in the communities where we work. Supplier diversity helps us build a stronger, better, more competitive company, aligning with America’s changing demographics.

Over the last few decades, bp has seen the positive economic impact across the US as it is a supplier diversity leader in not only the energy industry but across corporate America. As such, we have been recognized by our supplier diversity partners in several ways:
These awards recognize corporations with supplier diversity programs and processes that have worked especially hard to sustain and bring qualified and competitive minority and/or women business enterprises (M/WBEs) into their supply chains.
bp is proud that its US program supports nearly 10,000 employees and 125,000 jobs which creates social and economic value, strengthens our reputation, drives our performance and underpins our strategy. Since 2018, bp has spent 1.3b with 177 women- and minority- owned businesses in the US alone, and bp is not done yet! The company is working toward achieving $1 billion in annual spend with certified diverse business enterprises by 2025.
