Supply Chain Diversity

Using goods and services from a diverse set of suppliers is good business that provides benefits to our customers, communities, and employees.

Over our history, we have worked closely with Indigenous partners in Canada and created innovative Partnering Agreements that deliver value through meaningful work opportunities in our facilities and projects. We have also facilitated relationships between some of our suppliers and Indigenous partners. This has resulted in several joint-venture agreements that will create future opportunities with us and our partners.

Supply Chain at WGL

WGL has strong supply chain diversity policies and commitments in place. For more than 30 years, we have supported women, minorities and veteran-owned businesses through our Supplier Diversity Management Program.

WGL's efforts have been recognized locally and nationally and has resulted in significant increases in total system supply chain management spend with minority businesses.

Since 2009, WGL’s diversity spend has more than doubled, growing from 11 percent to 26 percent in 2018. That represents US$1.27 billion in goods and services purchased from certified businesses owned by minorities, women and service-disabled veterans.

In 2018, WGL announced the Strive for 35 program, which supports and strengthens diverse and minority businesses in our community. The goal is to increase spending on diverse suppliers to 35 percent by 2028.
