FINILOOP works with cities to reduce, redesign and improve management of plastics
Creating green jobs and local circular economies
FINILOOP aims to create green jobs and local circular economies by optimizing sorting and collection of household waste, reduce usage of plastic and improve recycling FINILOOP stands for Financial Inclusion and Improved Livelihoods Out of Plastics.
FINILOOP partners with cities to reduce, redesign and improve management of plastics. By stimulating the usage of less plastic, looking for alternatives and keeping plastic longer in the loop, FINILOOP directly contributes to the circular economy.
How does FINILOOP work?
To improve and scale plastic waste management systems in Asia and Africa, FINILOOP uses a multi-stakeholder approach – the Diamond Approach – to involve the entire value chain in plastic. We do so by:
As a result, we improve the quality of solid waste services and quality of recycled plastic, whilst boosting plastic recycling rates. FINILOOP focuses on building local capacities in facilitating plastic recycling loans to improve recycling infrastructure, plastic recycling business development, and waste segregation at source.
FINILOOP programmes started in India and Senegal. In these countries, our activities focus on building local capacities and enabling circular economies related to plastic recycling to ensure sustainability. Similarly, FINILOOP programme countries depend on each other for innovation and local knowledge sharing.
