With the world moving towards sustainability, corporates are gearing up to contribute their bit in order to achieve a green future. In a world where the focus is on ESG and CSR, recycling becomes pivotal to achieving their stated objectives. Recognising the importance of recycling and upcycling, BW Businessworld organised the first edition of its ‘Recycling Awards Conclave &Awards’ 2022.

The main focus of the conclave was bringing together like-minded people, acknowledging and awarding the great work done in sustainability, environment, waste management, recycling, and up-cycling. Seven different categories were announced for these awards and nominations were invited.

The panel discussions in the event were around creating an efficient and professionally managed ecosystem for waste management, green environment, and conservation. They will be based on concerns and efforts surrounding glass, plastic and e-waste recycling. We will also discuss the processes and chemistry of recycling, also explore the deep socio-economic impact of recycling and how can we embed it in the everyday lifestyle of people.

The entire process is transparent with the final list of winners being selected by a panel of esteemed jurists. With a total of over 80 nominations received in its inaugural year, 53 were presented to the jury across 19 categories. Each nominee was given 3 minutes to present their case, followed by questions from the jurists. The panel included Dr Annurag Batra, Chairman and Editor in Chief BW Busienssworld, Rajendra Singh, the ‘Waterman of India’, Indian water conservationist and environmentalist, Gauri Sarin, Founder, Making Model Gurgaon Bhumijaa &Living Without Medicine, Sudhir Mishra, Founder, and Managing Partner, Trust Legal, Dr. Samir Joshi, Treasurer, Governing Council Indian Plastics Institute, Ashutosh Joshi, Glasspower Recycling & Glasspower Griup, Dr Suneel Pandey, Director- environment and waste management, TERI, and Anshu Gupta, Founder, Goonj & Indian Social Entrepreneur.
