Supplier Diversity Program Policy Statement

Integrys Energy Services has a deep commitment to Diversity. One example of this is the establishment of our Supplier Diversity Program that is directed by Raymond Suennen, the Governmental Contracts Compliance Coordinator. As part of this program, we actively seek out suppliers who are Small Businesses that can add value to our supply chain and provide us with an opportunity to increase our value to our customers. The synergy this creates flows to benefit the entire community. It is for this reason that I fully support the Integrys Energy Services Supplier Diversity Program and expect all of Integrys Energy Services employees to also support it.

In order to embrace our mission “to provide customers with the best value in energy and related services”, Integrys Energy Services requires a responsive and cost-effective supply network. Small business vendors, including disadvantaged-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, veteran-owned businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned businesses, and small businesses operating from a HUBZone, are a vital part of fulfilling that mission and our commitment to support our communities, while providing our customers a positive, memorable experience. Our success is measured by our ability to create value for all of our stakeholders – small business suppliers, customers and all of us that are Integrys Energy.
