IKEA Social Entrepreneurship has partnered with Saahas Zero Waste on a pilot programme to transform, through three waste management micro-entrepreneurs, the informal waste sector in India. 

The result of the programme will be that informal waste workers, through a self-sustaining business model, will for the first time receive formally recognised employment under decent work conditions. It will also see plastic waste collected in an end-to-end recovery which will be a source of secondary raw material for IKEA in the region and will provide detailed traceability to the plastics sourced. 

The partnership will demonstrate an integrated approach to turning plastic waste into opportunities, with a focus on innovation and technology and supports the IKEA ambition to work with sustainable raw material and become a circular business by 2030.
