Changing the image of waste through education and innovative solutions for the community is paramount. Involving the government and the local communities so that they can better regulate and control the waste market is also indispensable. In the economy, we believe that the one who pays is entitled to articulate requirements.
Waste management and the value creation resulting from it is a labor-intensive trade. The work force in this domain requires a particular set of skills. Waste pickers are highly competent at identifying products. There are hundreds of plastic types with different density. Each category must be identified and segregated, impurities must be removed before processing so that the end product can be valued. Each worker must specializes in a particular type of material, requiring long training hours.
Providing local jobs and protecting the environment is not sufficient though. We value the importance of being a dynamic and positive force in the local community. Our young people are the leaders of tomorrow. We want to provide training in schools around sustainable development and the importance of waste in our society. Sustainable development is the way to go forward, generating an enormous source of opportunities for the future generations. The sustainable business agenda has never been more relevant today.
