Better together: Creating a sustainable, diverse supply chain

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we are focused on the impact of our supply chain and the hundreds of suppliers we partner with each and every day. Large or small, rural or urban, our suppliers understand that sustainability matters to us and the communities we serve.

To help us identify suppliers who share our commitment to sustainability, PGE’s Supply Chain department developed a new qualification program that reviews current and future suppliers based on sustainability, diversity and safety.

Through the deployment of this program, we aim to obtain a stronger understanding of our suppliers’ practices, including environmental impact and — by association — our own impacts. 

The new process will allow us to better track supplier emissions and build out an even stronger, long-term sustainability plan. As of August 2018, more than half of our suppliers are enrolled in the new program.
