Sustainable Public Procurement Action Plan for Indian Railways

Cover image of action plan.

Public procurement accounts for a significant share of countries' gross domestic product (GDP). This share is estimated in the range of 15% to 40%, depending on economic characteristics. In India, public procurement as a percentage of GDP is estimated between 20% and 22%, indicating a more significant engagement by the government in providing goods, services, and works.

This action plan and its preparatory and implementation documents have been developed as part of the SWITCH-Asia SCP Facility's endeavor to strengthen the implementation of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) policies at the national level in Asian countries.

It lays out a plan of action for mainstreaming sustainable public procurement, sustainable building and construction, and water and waste management, in the Indian railways system.
