On 10 May 2018,a Training-of-trainers (ToT) workshop on “Greening the Supply Chain” toolkit was conducted in Kathmandu, Nepal. The ToT workshop took place with an objective to train technical consultants and project coordinators on “Greening the Supply Chain” toolkit.

The workshop was facilitated by Amarnath Munnolimath, Project Manager, adelphi .
This toolkit was adapted from the toolkit produced by adelphi to 'Bavarian Ministry of the Environment and Consumer Protection', Germany. Using this supply chain toolkits, the ToT participants gained the insights on how to analyse the supply chain of an industry and how one can implement the Resource Efficient Cleaner Production (RECP) measures in the overall processes involved in the supply chain of a component / product. To make the toolkit experience practicle, all participants worked on the industry case studies by analysing the supply chain of one component and identifying potential to apply RECP measures in the component processes. They also engaged in peer-learning through the presentation and analysis of selected case studies.
Following the ToT workshop, the ToT participants employed their acquired insights to facilitate a Customer Roundtable the following day, on 11 May 2018, in Kathmandu, Nepal.
