Through a highly efficient supply chain, we strategically source commodities and equipment from national and international suppliers as per the business requirements. The logistics operations and inventory management framework places much emphasis on reducing waste throughout the supply chain. A shift from road transport to eco-friendly rail mode has been a step in the right direction as it has reduced the lead time and pilferages. We are investing in appropriate technologies to create best-in-class procurement processes with the implementation of latest IT systems.
We have a procurement policy along with a supplier and contractor sustainability management policy and supplier code of conduct that meticulously governs our relationship with partners. The policies enable the supplier screening process and help evaluate them on the basis of social and environmental parameters.
