Purpose

We want to double our recycling target to 400,000 tonnes by 2025 of which we commit to supply 100,000 tonnes of recycled plastics for packaging application by 2025. We intend to create infrastructure for the collection, sorting, and recycling of more than 50,000 tonnes of plastics by 2025, through our subsidiary Gemcorp Recycling and Technologies Private Limited.

We are working towards improving and expanding our infrastructure to bring more people from the unorganized sector into the mainstream. We are actively working towards replicating the collection model in multiple locations across the globe. We will seek to sensitize more companies about the circular economy and increasing the adaptation of the circular paradigm. The idea is that #circulareconomy is the only way forward towards a sustainable future and can help reduce and address climate change.
