|Membership of supplier diversity is available to large purchasing organisations that are committed to working toward the achievement of supplier chain diversity, within the context of European legislation and culture.|
There is an annual fee for one of two types of membership and an associated package of membership benefits, with optional support available on a fee per service basis.
More detailed information about memberships, SDE services and fees are available in the SDE membership pack.
We are also launching a score card that leads to the achievement of the Euro-Class Standard. This aims to highlight and record levels of achievement in progressing supplier chain diversity within and across European countries.
As part of this initiative we will work with companies as part of our membership service to bring them, within a year, to a position where they can apply to be assessed for the Euro-Class Standard.
We can also supply additional fee for service work.
• Silver membership includes an SDE assessment, benchmarking and recommendations; provision of a tool-kit and starter pack, and access to best practice and information on supplier chain diversity as well as knowledge sharing opportunities.
• Gold membership includes all the above as well as a customised gold membership plan and assistance on implementation; some focussed training; and advice on finding potential underrepresented suppliers in an agreed flexible programme of work.
