At STERIS, we believe that a diverse base of suppliers offers the vast knowledge and unique perspectives needed to support our MISSION: TO HELP OUR CUSTOMERS CREATE A HEALTHIER AND SAFER WORLD.
Supplier diversity is the commitment to developing and maintaining a more inclusive supply base through ethical business practices and workplace standards.
“Diversity – of our people and our suppliers – is built into the fabric of our organization in our efforts to fulfill that ambition. Doing so strengthens our ability to achieve our Mission and also benefits the communities in which we do business.”
Chief Executive Officer, STERIS
Diversity helps to strengthen the value we provide to our Customers. We focus on doing business with companies that are equally as committed to their Customers and inclusive business practices.
STERIS is focused on building supply chain diversity through a variety of suppliers. Our inclusive supplier portfolio includes various companies that are certified in the following categories:
STERIS practices nondiscrimination and equal opportunity in all areas of our business as a way to help strengthen diversity across the organization. It is our policy to request bids from companies that have documentation of their quality, manufacturing and business practices. Our Supply Chain Management (SCM) policy ensures compliance with all regulatory agency requirements as well as with federal, state and local procurement regulations and programs.
MBE, SDVO, HUBZone and VO businesses must have documented certification of their status by the certifying authority. WBE and SB businesses can be self-certified.
