CII’s Waste to Worth Conference: Record number of entries received for 3R Awards

With the theme of ‘Moving Towards a Circular Economy Through Innovative 3R approaches’,  the CII is organizing its digital Conference on Waste to Worth on November 16 and 17, 2021 in association with the Office of the Principal Scientific Advisor and the Republic of Poland as a Guest Country for the event.

The conference is important as it will honour the waste industry, start-ups and municipal corporations with CII 3R Awards 2021 during the inaugural session, scheduled on November 16 at 11.30 am. The inaugural event will be graced by Prof Vijay Raghavan, Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government of India, Mr Naresh Pal Gangwar – Jt Secretary MoEFCC, and Mr. Adam Burakowski, the Ambassador of Poland to India.

This year, CII received a record total of 101 applications, including 77 from industry members and start-ups.

The CII 3R Awards aim at recognising industries which have embraced best practices for managing waste generated from their own activities; developing minimum/ zero waste yielding products; managing municipal solid waste; and other urban wastes such as plastic and e-wastes under EPR strategies.

The Awards also recognize start-ups which are offering innovative solutions for sustainable waste management; and Municipal Corporations which are effectively managing municipal solid waste in respective cities/ towns.

The purpose of these awards is to encourage, recognize and reward best practices of industry, start-ups and municipal corporations in order to set a benchmark of excellence in waste management for a large number of players to thrive to adopt these best practices and improve upon them.

Different categories of industry including large, MSME’s, start-ups and Municipal Corporations have been encouraged to participate in the competition and the entries were evaluated by experts of the appraisal committees and further members of eminent jury.

It is an extremely important initiative by CII to encourage 3R (reduce, reuse and recycle) practices amongst the industry, start-ups and municipal corporation for managing the wastes and extracting values, thereby promoting principle of circular economy.
