Supplier Diversity at WestRock

WestRock’s supplier diversity initiative strategy focuses on three areas – our customers, community and the company. We help our customers to meet their own supplier diversity spend goals while also affording WestRock the opportunity to act as a subject matter expert when sourcing fully vetted, diverse suppliers. Our supplier diversity initiative also drives economic development in places where we have operations, extending procurement opportunities to diverse businesses that provide jobs in local communities.

Diversity Among Suppliers

Diversity among employees, business partners and our customers makes good business sense, serves as a great way to stimulate economic development, and is intrinsically one of the best examples of WestRock values of Integrity, Respect, Excellence and Accountability at work.

Beyond supplying us with a network of minority alliance suppliers, diverse suppliers bring their own level of innovation, creativity and agility along with new perspectives and ensures that our supply chain accurately reflects the diversity of our clients and our workforce by engaging in dynamic and inclusive subcontractor partnerships with:

  • Minority-owned Business Enterprises (MBEs)
  • Women-owned Business Enterprises (WBEs)
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender-owned Business Enterprises (LGBTBEs)
  • Disabled-owned Business Enterprises (DBEs)
  • Veteran-owned Business Enterprises (VBEs)
  • Small Business Enterprises (SBE’s)
