  • Published on December 30, 2021

 "Towards a Circular Economy for Plastic in India - A review of community, industry and public sector initiatives", authored by Development Alternatives, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI). This report focuses on the role of community and industry-led initiatives in driving change towards a circular economy for plastics.

This report focuses on the role of community and industry-led initiatives in driving change towards a circular economy for plastics. India's plastic consumption per capita remains low. Its production of plastic waste in absolute terms makes it the 15th largest producer of plastic waste in the world. A substantial proportion of this waste is mismanaged with negative consequences on the natural environment and human health. In this context, this report aims at building an understanding of initiatives that have been implemented in India to address plastic waste and support a circular economy for plastics.
