Supplier Diversity

Developing viable long term-business partnerships while continuing to increase the economic impact within the communities where we do business.

Statistics

Inclusive procurement practices provide opportunities for diverse businesses that in turn increase representation, create job opportunities and provide economic advancement for historically underrepresented groups, including racial minorities, women, veterans and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Southern Company Gas’ engagement with small, minority, women and veteran-owned businesses in 2020 and 2021 led to over $3 billion in contributions to the U.S. economy and sustained nearly 20,000 jobs.
