Supplier Diversity

Commitment to Supplier Diversity

SJI’s continued success depends on our ability to achieve business objectives. Our suppliers are integral to those objectives. SJI’s Supplier Diversity Program looks to expand relationships with women, minority and service disabled veteran-owned businesses that provide competitive prices and services to SJI. We believe that building a more diverse supplier base will help us to better serve our customers and remain competitive.

Supplier Diversity Policy

It is SJI’s policy to encourage and afford opportunities to minority, women and service disabled veteran-owned businesses, while ensuring the best combination of quality, service and cost effectiveness. Additionally, the policy ensures strict compliance with all regulatory agency requirements as well as with federal, state and local procurement regulations and programs.

Supplier Diversity Development Council

SJI is a proud member of the BPU Supplier Diversity Council, which is dedicated to forging effective working relationships between minority, woman and service disabled veteran-owned businesses and New Jersey public utilities. The SDDC was chartered in 1997 to advise the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities and the companies they regulate on matters relating to reporting, measuring and assessing the development of relationships with diversity suppliers.
