Decentralised Waste Management Solutions in India

Decentralised Waste Management Solutions in India

Over the past few months, our team in India have been working hard on a number of projects designed to address pollution at its source. Our aim is to reduce eutrophication of waterways and coastal ecosystems, eliminate the burning of waste, and take the pressure off marine ecosystems through the creation of a locally-led decentralised waste management service.
