Resource efficient supply chain for metal products in buildings sector in South Asia (METABUILD)

The construction sector uses various metals like steel, iron, aluminum and copper. In developing economies, more than 60% of the steel is consumed to create new infrastructure. Due to increasing pressure on energy and water resources, economic edge can be sustained only through high resource efficiency. Specific problems in metal products supply chain include lack of modernisation, sub-optimal operation leading to inefficiencies, lack of technical and financial support for improving operations, lack of skilled manpower and traditional mind-set. Adopting resource efficient cleaner production (RECP) measures will improve economic and environmental performance, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The project aims at implementing sustainable production processes and practices in 400 SMEs and creating conducive environment for further adoption of sustainable production processes in the metal products supply chain for building and construction sector.

Duration: 3/2016 - 2/2020

Total budget: EUR 2,713,497 (EU Contribution: 90%)
