Supplier Diversity Policy
At MyECOplanet, LLC (“MyECOPlanet”), we believe that supplier diversity provides us with a significant position of strength in which to support our customers and perform in the markets we serve. We are proud to support alliances with minority and women owned business enterprises (“M/WBE”) and service-disabled-veteran-owned business enterprises (“SDVBE”) and enthusiastically embrace the clear vision and mission that guides our diversity initiatives.
MyECOPlanet’s policy underscores the company's commitment to the M/WBE and SDVBE programs by stating that maximum opportunity will continually be afforded to minority, women, and service-disabled-veteran-owned businesses to participate with us as suppliers, contractors, and subcontractors of goods and services. MyECOPlanet believes this program has the potential of creating better partners, stronger customers, and economic growth for our business partners, customers and employees. The policy ensures strict compliance with all regulatory agency requirements as well as with federal, state, and local procurement regulations and programs.
We recognize that our business performance is evaluated by tapping into the expertise and creativity of all MyECOPlanet suppliers and service providers. By utilizing and partnering with diverse suppliers, we will continue to establish a supplier base that positively contributes to our competitive advantage.
Minority, women, and service-disabled-veteran-owned business enterprises (MWSDVBE) are viewed as a natural part of MyECOPlanet’s business environment. We plan to grow the number of MWSDVBE businesses to supplement how we meet our business objectives.
