We are ESDP

We connect ethnic minority and immigrant-owned businesses with global corporations. For inclusive supply chains that drive growth across Europe.

Empowering diversity in business, one connection at a time.
For a better future for all.

At the European Supplier Diversity Program (ESDP), we are breaking down the barriers that prevent ethnic minority businesses from securing contracts with global corporations.
We bring together European ethnic minority businesses, with industry leaders who are committed to inclusive procurement and supplier diversity. And through development programs, knowledge-sharing and networking, we are fostering more global business opportunities and diversity across supply chains in Europe.

If you are a sourcing buyer or procurement professional in the private sector, we can help you increase your supply chain diversity and improve your inclusive procurement practices. We will show how it will benefit your organisation as well as the wider world.

Corporations

If you are a European entrepreneur-owned business with an ethnic minority or immigrant background, we can help open doors to major contracts and empower you to break down the barriers to growth.

Business Owners
“A successful supplier diversity program presents a real opportunity to answer the resilience, savings and innovation needs of businesses, while also delivering sustainable, positive social impact.”
Alexandra Tarmo, Vice President, Procurement, Kenvue
“I have been able to use the uniqueness of my position as a business leader who is a woman of colour. I have been able to use that visibility as a strength.”
