Supplier Diversity, Sustainability and Ethics

It is National Grid’s goal to provide minority, women-owned, small, sustainable businesses and all other diverse business enterprises an equal opportunity to participate in National Grid’s procurement and sourcing process.

National Grid understands multicultural changes and trends in the utility sector and believes in developing a rich, diverse supply chain. This dynamic approach provides National Grid with a competitive advantage and strengthens its reputation in the communities we serve. Utilizing diverse and sustainable businesses in our jurisdictions (NY, MA) helps us impact local economic growth.

Our Supplier Diversity Program not only encourages the inclusion of diverse and sustainable suppliers but also provides opportunities in these areas:

  • Certification Assistance
  • Business Development Programs
  • Supplier Mentorship Programs
  • Capital Access Programs


Supplier Ethics Requirements

Welcome to the Supplier Ethics Requirements page. At National Grid, Doing the Right Thing is one of our core principles under our Framework for Responsible Business. It is important that we hold our suppliers to the same set of ethical principles as we do our employees. National Grid has developed a Global Supplier Code of Conduct, which mirrors National Grid’s Doing the Right Thing — Our Standards of Ethical Business Conduct. All suppliers are subject to the Supplier Code of Conduct.


Ethics requirements and informational documents

National Grid expects its suppliers to comply with its Global Anti-Financial Crimes Policy.

National Grid expects all of its suppliers to fill out a Supplier Ethics Acknowledgement. Through this acknowledgment, you are confirming that you have read and understand the Global Supplier Code of Conduct and that you will communicate the same to all of your employees and any subcontractors that you retain on behalf of National Grid. This acknowledgment needs to be returned prior to performing any work for National Grid.

If you have any questions, the National Grid US Ethics and Compliance team is available to assist.
