Veritas core values and everyday actions are based on five guiding principles below, and we expect the same of our supplier base. Our sourcing process and supplier management ensure that the right suppliers are in place to meet the high standards, innovation and value we expect for delivery of all goods and services. Our suppliers understand our goals, values and have an agile approach to achieve the best possible outcomes in our fast-paced industry.
Veritas is strongly committed to social and environmental initiatives and, as such, values our long-standing relationships with diverse and socially responsible suppliers.
Supplier diversity is important to Veritas – we recognize the value and importance of diversity as a distinct business advantage. A diverse supply chain is one of the many ways we offer value to our customers by fostering economic growth in the communities they serve. As such, we have established and continue to increase a diverse network of suppliers to provide the support, services and products our company needs to operate successfully.
We are committed to enhancing our methods of outreach to existing and new diverse suppliers to identify opportunities for their continued growth. We are dedicated to fostering successful partnerships through innovative and cost-effective solutions, both of which contribute to our mutual growth and success and benefit the communities where we operate. Veritas has several important M/WBE relationships and has a Supplier Diversity Program to monitor progress towards our company spending goals.
We participate in various activities of instruction, mentoring and outreach including attending and participating in national and regional conferences, supplier mailings and creating internal awareness. We also actively track the supply base.
