Our mission is
to build innovative solutions
for solid waste management for
resilient cities and communities.
We are working to build a circular economy by helping businesses and cities to increase recycling efficiency and value, limiting the waste that reaches landfill. We are committed to limiting the negative environmental impacts of waste by creating integrated and sustainable solutions to waste management problems. Together with our partners, we are working towards sustainable development goal 11, reducing the environmental impact of cities through effective municipal solid waste management.
We believe that smart city technologies have the potential to strengthen community resilience by creating a network of cities, businesses and the public that are able to work together to build effective and efficient waste management systems.
