Objectives of Foundation
To convert municipal solid waste into recycled materials, compost and energy thereby minimising dumping waste in landfills
To ensure minimum wastage of resources (like, fuel) by developing effective and technologically advanced waste management systems.
To give employment over hundreds of local women at our MRF facility with hygienic working conditions.
The vision of Foundation
These days, it seems like climate change is on the tip of everyone's tongues, from those who champion our need to act to those who vehemently deny that the climate is changing at all. As a key utility service that more than 2 billion people are currently lacking, solid waste management (SWM) is a crosscutting issue that can be directly linked to 12 out of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We ensure access for all too adequate, safe, and affordable solid waste collection services. Uncollected waste is often dumped in waterways or burned in the open air, thus directly causing pollution and contamination. Waste also clogs the drains, which exacerbates floods, keeping stagnant water and contributing to water-borne diseases and malaria. Our overarching environmental goal is to reduce GHG emissions while protecting the environment. Currently, the services we provide avoid three times (3X) more GHG emissions than we generate in our operations. Our 2038 goal calls for reducing even more GHG emissions—four times (4X) the GHG emissions we generate through our operations. All of our environmental goals contribute to this overarching goal of emitting less and reducing, avoiding and offsetting more. Waste Management aspires to make the communities where we live and work safe, resilient and sustainable. We are investing in a quieter, cleaner fleet; supporting programs that preserve biodiversity and conservation
