Support to Start-ups and Innovators on Alternate Packaging Materials

28 Sep 2021

The aim of the work is to help GIZ better target the activities and develop a more comprehensive approach for the implementation of the Plastic Waste Management (Rules) 2016 and EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) framework while contributing to a circular economy. The project will provide support to identified start-ups producing alternative to plastics packaging material in Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, and Kerala and determine their scale up and replicability pan-India including through E-commerce platforms.

The study will explore ways to drive more environmentally sustainable alternative packaging materials. Materials that would serve the intended purpose and can be disposed in an environmentally safe and sound manner or re-used / recycled.
