Supplier Diversity Overview
Message from the Chairman and CEO
Piedmont Natural Gas is committed to being the energy provider of choice in the communities we serve. In addition to providing high-quality natural gas services for our customers, we encourage diversity when selecting vendors and business partners. We believe this strategy enhances our relationships with our local communities, attracts the most qualified suppliers and encourages innovation and creativity.
Operating a supplier diversity program is also a sound business decision, promoting sustainable business practices and helping Piedmont navigate an increasingly competitive marketplace.
Our program is growing, and we sincerely appreciate the continued efforts and guidance of organizations including the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, Carolinas Minority Supplier Development Council and the Women’s Enterprise National Council.
My teammates and I at Piedmont Natural Gas are committed to expanding supplier diversity within all our lines of business, and we look forward to sharing our success stories with you for years to come.
