Supplier Diversity

In all our operations, Phillips 66 seeks to do business with diverse businesses and is committed to providing equal and impartial opportunities. This approach stimulates local economic development and enhances our long-term business performance by improving supplier engagement, competition and sustainability.

At Phillips 66, inclusion and diversity enable our business strategy and goals. We consider diversity among both our employees and our suppliers to be fundamental to our success as a global energy manufacturing company, and foundational to the success of our industry.

An inclusive workplace enables our people to use their diverse talents to innovate and thrive, create value and deliver exceptional performance. Phillips 66 is committed to working for the greater good, and our appreciation for the differences that make us stronger extends into our communities. We work to foster a diverse supplier base. We build relationships with, and buy materials and services from, a variety of enterprises, such as small businesses and companies owned by women, minorities, military veterans, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and people with disabilities. We focus on our goal to integrate qualified, diverse suppliers into first- and second-tier opportunities through our procurement processes.

Our obligation to and expectations for Supplier Diversity is communicated to our employees, team members and other stakeholders through the Procurement Policy.
