Message from the Chairman and CEO
Today’s energy industry is undergoing dramatic change. Regulatory changes, technological innovations and evolving customer expectations all bring opportunities for Duke Energy to create value for its stakeholders.
As we define our position in this growing and changing marketplace, several elements are fundamental to our success:
- Providing affordable, reliable and safe power to our customers
- Striving to provide equal opportunity for all companies who want to do business with us
- Collaborating with all our suppliers to support our commitment to supplier diversity
Each year, we do business with diverse firms that offer outstanding commodities and services at competitive prices. We benefit from the integrity, quality and performance of these suppliers who are proven in today’s competitive business arena.
Our focus on supplier diversity is a corporate priority. Duke Energy believes that engaging diverse suppliers helps us meet our operating and financial goals as well as the economic vitality of the communities we serve; thereby contributing to our future success.

Commitment to Supplier Diversity
At Duke Energy, it is our practice to proactively seek diverse suppliers. Through Supplier Diversity, we build relationships with small, local, and diverse businesses (minority, women, veteran, HUBZone) capable of providing commodities and services at competitive prices. We are committed to building bridges between these businesses and Duke Energy by providing equitable opportunities to compete. We believe these efforts can have lasting positive effects on economic development locally, regionally, and nationally. Duke Energy is committed to establishing long-lasting “win-win” relationships that create value for all stakeholders.
