Supplier Value Creation

Procurement decisions are based on life cycle costing to reduce natural resource demand. Environmental impact of the purchase decision is linked to its CO2 reduction initiative, the extent of the possibility of reusing a material and switching to a recyclable material, recycling and safe disposal of waste.

The Company ensures that the local workforce is a key beneficiary of its processes and practices by making it mandatory for its suppliers to focus on greater workforce diversity through greater inclusion of underprivileged communities, skill upgradation and training of semi-literate workers as well as contract workers to enable them to progressively assume greater responsibilities. Improvement in the availability of employee welfare benefits to tier 2 service providers as well as focusing on the health and safety of their workforce has been achieved through initiatives such as SA8000.

At Tata Steel the community is the purpose of business. Therefore the Company does not seek incentives, grants, subsidies, compensation or financial assistance from the Government, including for investments made through its Community Development initiatives.
