The PET Packaging industry commends the efforts of the Government of India in catalysing a movement for cleaner cities through initiatives like Swachh Bharat Mission and the Swachh Sarvekshan Awards. An increased weightage to citizen feedback for evaluating the winning cities is laudable.”
“At PACE, we believe that a culture of waste segregation and recycling are fundamental steps towards cleaner and environment friendly cities while providing livelihood opportunities to people working in the recycling value chain. Being 100% recyclable and already the most recycled packaging material in India, PET as a material lends itself very well to the Swachh Saravekshan Awards evaluation parameters such as waste collection, sweeping and transportation, municipal solid waste processing and disposal and education and behavior change. At PACE we are delighted to contribute towards continued education of citizens to foster a culture of waste segregation and recycling of PET.” added Mr. Kedia.

To this end, PACE partners with PET manufacturers, bottlers, processors, and recyclers across India to work towards a cleaner environment.
