The company's approach to developing a cheaper and more inclusive reverse logistics network has been recognised by MIT, Dubai Expo2020, The World Bank, the UN Foundation, The World Economic Forum, and the Launch Circular Innovation Ecosystem.
Kabadiwalla Connect is working to bring two products into the market by early 2019:
1. SaaS based model for the company's technology platform:
Kabadiwalla Connect is building solutions that can help clients meet their waste management, recycling, safety assessment and Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) requirements in cities in the developing world. Based on Information and Communications Technology (ICT), the company's platform brings a cost-effective and inclusive solution to the procurement, logistics and management of post-consumer waste in the city.
2. A franchise model for the company's Plastic Recovery Facility:
Kabadiwalla Connect is developing a Plastic Recovery Facility (PRF) that’s customised to procure from the informal sector, which the company believes is the missing link in the plastic recycling supply-chain in cities in the developing world.
In India, Kabadiwalla Connect's mission is to help divert 70% of urban India's waste away from the landfill, helping to avoid the emissions of close to 80 million metric tons of CO2 every year.
The company believes that the informal waste ecosystem represents a unique opportunity to build a cheaper and more efficient system of resource recovery in the Global South.
The company hopes to work with waste management companies, municipalities and large brands to help them meet their procurement and recycling targets in the developing world by leveraging the informal waste ecosystem.
