Nationwide’s core purpose is “building society, nationwide” where we seek to improve the society and communities in which we are embedded.
We are not a bank, we are a society, a Mutual. Our customers are our owners and, most importantly, our members to whom we need to demonstrate the value of “Mutual Good”.
We spend c£1.4 billion with 1,300 suppliers, significantly impacting multiple sectors. In 2018 we created our Supply Chain Responsible Business team, charged with embedding Sustainable Procurement to improve our environmental, economic and social impact.
Over the last two years we have embodied “Procurement for Mutual Good”.
