“At Enterprise Holdings, we value partnerships with diverse businesses and are committed to supplier representation that fully reflects the communities we serve. These relationships not only enhance our renowned level of customer service, but also our leadership role in mobility and corporate responsibility.”
Chrissy Taylor, President and Chief Executive Officer – Enterprise Holdings
The Enterprise Holdings Supplier Diversity Policy is intended to help facilitate an increase in the number of minority-owned, women-owned, and other socially or economically disadvantaged small businesses that work to supply goods and services for our company. It does so by providing assistance and a host of tools to help those with buying responsibility to identify, select, and do business with suppliers who can meet our requirements with regard to quality, timing, capacity and pricing.
Our mission is to partner with suppliers who resemble the communities in which we do business. As a result, the Enterprise Holdings Supplier Diversity Policy is designed to grow and develop partnerships with businesses who are Minority-Owned; Minority Business Enterprise (MBE certified); Woman-Owned; Women Business Enterprise (WBE certified); Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB); Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB); Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE certified); Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB certified); ACDBE certified; 8(a) certified; LGBT enterprises; Disability-Owned Business Enterprise (DOBE) and HUBZone certified.
