Supplier diversity

We source products and services from businesses that reflect the diversity of our markets and contribute to the sustainability of our communities, customers and company.

Selecting our suppliers

Lincoln’s procurement team is responsible for identifying, evaluating and qualifying suppliers to support our business. While we seek suppliers that provide first-rate goods and services at the best cost, we also consider innovative ideas and solutions. A diverse and inclusive supplier base enhances our brand, expands the breadth of our supplier talent and reinforces our commitment to the communities where we live and work.
