Members and their producers gathered together in mid-January in New Delhi for the first amfori BEPI workshop in India.
Led by the amfori Network Representative in India, Natasha Majumdar, this workshop aimed at supporting amfori BEPI producers in India and ensuring that they have all the knowledge they need to make the most out of their participation.
The workshop included:
•Group exercises to understand the environmental challenges in India and how they can play a role in their factories;
•Practical demonstrations on the amfori BEPI Platform;
•Advice on next steps for using amfori BEPI such as the improvement phase, Assessment, and Supply Chain Chemical Management Module (SCCM).
The training is important for Indian producers to get started with environmental improvements and understand how they use their participation in amfori BEPI to reduce their environmental impact and operate more efficiently. For amfori BEPI participants, this means that their producers will experience faster onboarding and show greater progress.
With more than 200 producers in India, amfori BEPI’s presence in the country is growing rapidly. This workshop marks the start of our environmental capacity building efforts in India, with more trainings planned in the future.
BEPI has for the past five years grown and expanded its network to include more than 330 members and 3500 producers across 14 sectors. The environmental training was extended first to China and Bangladesh, based on high numbers of producers in the amfori BEPI system and the need for environmental training.
For more learning opportunities available for members and producers, check out our upcoming training sessions on the amfori Academy on how to get started with amfori BEPI and Environmental Management Systems in China and Bangladesh.
