BHUBANESWAR, AUGUST 22, 2022
Amway India, one of the largest FMCG direct selling companies in the country, has become ‘pre- and post-consumer plastic waste neutral’ after having managed 100 per cent post-consumer plastic waste based on its Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) collection and recycled 100 per cent pre-consumer plastic waste generated at the Amway manufacturing facility.
The company said it collected and recycled 800 metric tonnes of post-consumer plastic waste, which was equivalent to managing over 50 million units of plastic product waste comprising bottles, tubes, caps, jars, and sachets of different sizes.
Besides, it recycled and reused 100 per cent hazardous products and plastic waste at its manufacturing plant to achieve pre-plastic waste neutrality.
Commenting on the achievement, Adip Roy, Associate Vice President, Regulatory Affairs, Amway India said, ““At Amway, our commitment to a healthy planet reflects in our products, processes, and philosophies. Sustainability is not just about compliance but is an intrinsic part of Amway’s culture. Achieving pre-and post-consumer plastic waste neutrality is one of our key milestones.” “As we move forward, we will continue to explore ways to reduce plastic waste pollution and in line with what we are envisaging by making our product bottles from recycled plastics. We are committed and determined to become a more sustainable company, bringing a positive change in the world, and enabling future generations to thrive,” he added.
As a responsible corporate, Amway India is one of the first brand owners in the country to have registered with the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) for Plastic Waste Management.
