FPL recognizes the value of a diverse business environment and actively promotes and seeks opportunities to work with qualified small, disadvantaged, women-owned, veteran and service-disabled veteran-owned, HUBZone, and minority-owned businesses. In fact, we have our own Supplier Diversity group that strives to increase our expenditures with qualified diverse suppliers.
The Supplier Diversity group serves as a liaison between company departments and diverse suppliers to promote mutually beneficial business opportunities.
Through our Supplier Diversity activities, we:
- seek to identify qualified businesses via conferences, trade shows, local/regional/national business development organizations, governmental agencies and community groups
- assist qualified businesses in gaining exposure at FPL through our company-sponsored Supplier Diversity events, and
- represent FPL in local, regional and national supplier diversity organizations and activities.
We are pleased to announce a new diverse supplier registration portal. Registered diverse suppliers have significant visibility to Fortune 500 companies who are seeking specific materials or services. Registration is free and should only take a few minutes.
Because FPL sourcing professionals use this database to search for diverse suppliers for bidding opportunities, it is critical that diversity information and certifications are up-to-date, complete and accurate.
