Europe, UK countries to mentor Indian SMEs on green projects

The idea is to improve small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) performance by implementing a green supply chain management model which is based on sustainability.

UK and European countries are eyeing the collaboration with Indian small and medium-sized enterprises to execute green and lean initiatives.

The report stated that as part of Rs 5.5 crore project funded by Kolkata's Jadavpur University and UK's Aston University, international experts in operations management are sharing best practices in the supply and value chain. Ten SME units have been included in the state at the initial stage.

"The idea is to improve small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) performance by implementing a green supply chain management model which is based on sustainability. This will reduce wastes and costs, improve performance with minimal or no damage to the environment. We are not imparting some ground-breaking technology but just sharing ideas on how to do it," Professor Prasanta K Dey of Aston Business School in Birmingham told PTI.

He added "efforts are aimed at elimination of wastes, reducing cycle time, re-engineering the manufacturing process, improving supply chain effectiveness, enhancing competence of process and manpower by training, energy saving, incorporating reverse logistics systems, reducing resource consumption and enhancing green productivity."

The research on the environmental performance of SMEs in India and UK carried out by the experts revealed the fact that SMEs in spite of their huge environmental targets do not have the right mechanism in place to improve the performance.
