Green Procurement Initiative

Our SCM team works in close tandem with various stakeholders within the organization and with focus on supplier development and strategic sourcing.

Supplier participation in the green procurement program (in numbers)

  • Increased supplier participation year on year
  • Enhanced support to MSME partners
  • Continuity – periodic assessment and corrective actions

Standing true to Praj’s ethos of sustainability, the team undertook the green procurement initiative in 2015. Core themes of this program are –

  • Legal compliance
  • Greenhouse gas emissions
  • Water & wastewater management
  • Waste management
  • Energy & carbon management
  • Safety considerations

With a dedicated in-house cell and in partnership with UK based implementation partner BSI, Praj has extended the program to involve more than 100 suppliers adapting to greener practices to save energy, water, safer and efficient operations. This is the first of its kind initiative in the biochemical processing and capital goods industry.

With this program, Praj aims to –

  • Introduce and institutionalize world-class processes & practices to MSME partners, thereby raising overall quality of delivery of the industry
  • Enhance legal compliance with focus on environmental permits and waste management including wastewater treatment
  • Enhance focus on labor & human rights with safer workplaces
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and conservation of natural resources to support India’s commitment to COP 21 UN Climate Change Conference
