Supplier Diversity

Inspiring Diversity and Supplying Innovation

At Veolia Water North America, our success is built on the success of the communities and clients we serve. As a result, we are constantly looking for new ways to bring added value to our clients and to support community growth. Our Supplier Diversity Program is just one way we achieve that. We work with hundreds of service and product partners across North America, from construction companies to communications firms, and are constantly looking for diverse suppliers* who share our core values.

Our Supplier Diversity Program bolsters our collaboration with diverse businesses and extends to strategic business alliances and joint ventures. Its focus includes maintaining a vendor database that allows us to meet all project needs by drawing from a diverse pool of prequalified subcontractors. This helps ensure the widest possible participation opportunity to all MWBE firms. Suppliers can register using the form on the right-hand side of this page.

Veolia Water is a corporate member of the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), a private organization that currently matches more than 15,000 minority-owned businesses (Asian, Black, Hispanic and Native American) with member corporations that purchase goods and services. Through our affiliation, Veolia Water has ready access to the NMSDC's database of certified suppliers.

We have developed a national agreement with the National Urban League to identify opportunities for local involvement on projects that our firm is in the process of developing. In communities where we're working to develop projects, we've conducted vendor fairs and outreach programs to foster local participation by diverse suppliers and companies.
