Supplier Diversity

At EQT, we believe that just as cultural diversity strengthens our communities, supplier diversity strengthens our company. That is why we are committed to providing qualified suppliers an equal opportunity to deliver goods and services that meet our business needs.

Through our Supplier Diversity program, EQT seeks to build relationships with businesses that reflect diversity in their ownership, management, workforce, and partnerships. To remain competitive, we also strive to identify suppliers that can deliver quality products and services and help us optimize efficiency in our supply chain so we might be able to pass cost savings along to our customers. We welcome the opportunity to meet and work with diverse suppliers because we recognize that it not only strengthens the communities where we operate, but it strengthens our operations as well.
