CIRCULAR ECONOMY & NEW MODELS

ISSUES

The goal of this project is to prove Veolia's ability to act on recyclable waste collection in any geography.
This project shows that digital technologies can boost informal waste collection networks. It allows Veolia to offer its customers solutions to respond to their producer responsibility requirements, even in emerging markets.

SOLUTIONS

2EI proposed to design solutions in collaboration with Kabadiwalla Connect ( KC), an Indian startup which has developed a number of apps (B2C,B2B) to create a virtual infrastructure identifying, at a local level, all key stakeholders in the recycling supply chain. These apps connect stakeholders with waste holders and waste transformers, enabling commercial transactions. 2EI is currently defining a collaboration model with KC to further spread the solution to other business cases or territories.
