CBRE Named as Winner of the Supplier Diversity & Inclusion Award at World Procurement Awards 2022
Our CBRE GWS UK Procurement team was named the winner of the Supplier Diversity & Inclusion award at the World Procurement Awards 2022 in London on June 15.
The awards ceremony was the finale of the two-day World Procurement Congress and brought together 1,000+ procurement professionals across all sectors.
CBRE was recognised for transforming our procurement practices in the UK to provide more opportunities for diverse-owned suppliers and social enterprises to work with our clients. This includes our work with advocacy organisations including Social Enterprise UK, internal sales teams and clients directly, which has provided suppliers with mentoring and support to grow, allowing us to increase spend with diverse suppliers by 325% in just one year.
The judging panel including representatives from Albemarle, Accenture, Starbucks, Heineken, and Bank of America also highlighted our rapid pace of progress and our team’s efforts to raise awareness throughout the organisation.
This is a fantastic accolade and is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our team in helping to move the dial on supplier diversity.
