Dabur becomes the first Indian plastic waste neutral FMCG company
India’s largest Ayurveda company, Dabur India has recently announced that it has become a complete plastic waste neutral firm in the country after collecting, processing, and recycling around 27,000 metric tonnes of post-consumer plastic waste during FY21-22. With this the company has acquired the status of the first Indian plastic waste neutral FMCG company in India. Shahrukh A. Khan, executive director-operations of Dabur India said: “It is a matter of great pride for the entire Dabur family, who have worked towards not just collecting plastic waste from our cities, towns, and villages, but also preventing the waste from reaching our landfills and oceans. This includes all types of plastic waste, from PET and HDPE bottles, PP caps and labels to multi-layered plastics and beverage cartons. We work with government-registered recycling partners across the country and have taken progressive actions to reduce plastic waste in cities, towns, villages, while also raising awareness about plastic waste management within the community. The collected plastic waste is being sent to different Recyclers, Waste-to-Energy Plants and Cement Kilns”.
