BP and Supply Nation have teamed up to bring discounted fuel and other benefits to indigenous businesses in Australia for the first time.
The exclusive new offer is available to almost 1,000 Supply Nation suppliers, providing successful applicants with a BP Plus Fuel Card that can be used at 1,400 BP branded sites across the country.
Indigenous suppliers will have access to a fuel discount of 4¢ per litre, as well as technology and online systems that provide convenience, security and flexibility to help run an efficient business.
“BP is proud to build on our existing relationship with Supply Nation and be the first fuel retailer in Australia to take this unique step in supporting indigenous suppliers,” BP Chief Financial Officer Asia Pacific Brooke Miller said.
“We believe that this offer will help to give indigenous businesses a real commercial edge because of its full range of benefits and at the same time attract new customers to our BP sites around the country.”
Indigenous suppliers that apply for the exclusive offer before November 30 may also be eligible to receive a total fuel discount of 8¢ per litre for six months and no BP Plus Fuel Card fees for 12 months.
Supply Nation is the first and pre-eminent supplier diversity organisation in Australia, providing businesses across all industries with government-approved indigenous certification. It is enabling government entities to fulfil indigenous procurement targets set in 2015 and providing a valuable service to private sector Supply Nation members, which are committed to supplier diversity.
BP has been a member of Supply Nation and a proud sponsor of the annual Connect Gala Awards Dinner since its inception in 2011. BP and Supply Nation have also joined up to offer an indigenous business development program, dedicated procurement workshops and training.
