About my work

a) Spent 33 years in the private sector specialising in marketing, sales and procurement. I have thus gravitated toward sustainable consumption and sustainable public procurement. For UNEP-DTIE, I have organised 3 India Roundtables on SCP, a meeting between the Marrakech Task Forces and stakeholders in South Asia, training for Government officials from South Asia in National SCP Action Plans and a Workshop on Sustainable Tourism in India, amongst other activities. Have also organised 2 workshops on Green Public procurement in India One exclsuively for the Indian Railways), have completed a GIZ project on Green Procurement in Public Sector Companies and am organising a training course for officals of India's largest procurement agency. Have also led a team which is completing a study of Ecolabelling & SPP in the ASEAN + 3 Region. I also lecture on Sustainability/SPP vis-a-vis CSR at the Engineering Staff College of India. I can thus assist organisations and individuals who require a combination of hands-on experience as well as theoretical/policy-level expertise particularly in the Asia-Pacific Region but also to LDCs in Africa and elsewhere.
