Chevron Phillips Chemicals seeks to be the employer, supplier, neighbor and investment of choice through our continual growth and innovation. We aim to identify and build long-term relationships with our suppliers to ensure safe and reliable operations. A key enabler of our vision is the active and ongoing inclusion of minority, women, veteran, LGBTQ and others with a disability-owned business as well as small business enterprises in CPChem’s supplier diversity program.
Maintaining a diverse supply base is fundamental to stimulating local economic development, enhancing innovation, and enabling maximum benefit to long- term business and operational performance.
"We strongly believe that our success depends on having the most competitive, innovative and reliable supply base. We can accomplish this by expanding opportunities to our diverse suppliers who can help us embrace new ideas, attain a competitive advantage and deliver positive contributions to the communities in which we live and work.”
- Bruce Chinn, President and CEO
"We truly believe that supporting sustainable and diverse suppliers results in the continuous improvement of our suppliers, customers and communities around the world demonstrating our company's strong commitment in sustainability, social responsibility and diverse excellence."
- Angelica McKinnon, Supplier Programs Manager, Global Procurement
