Supporting waste pickers and workers in the PET supply chain in Indonesia

WASTE has been involved in a project to improve the working conditions and livelihoods of workers and waste pickers in the PET supply chain on Bali, Indonesia.
Namasindo PLAS is a leading supplier of gallons, bottle preforms, and caps to the bottled water industry in Indonesia. The company sources its raw material PET from large established suppliers. The recycling arm of the business is exposed to an informally organized used-plastic-bottles supply chain consisting of a number of middlemen and about 15.000 individual waste pickers.

 

Design and implement a Supply Chain and CSR programme
Together with Aidenvironment we were contracted by the development finance institutions DEG from Germany, FMO from the Netherlands and Namasindo PLAS to design and implement a Supply Chain and CSR (corporate social responsibility) programme for the PET recycling branch of the business.
The programme aimed to improve the working conditions and livelihoods of the workers in the collection centres and the waste pickers.
