Blue Planet founder, Madhujeet Chimni and strategic advisor, Martin Blake were live on air today on MoneyFM radio show in Singapore. Representing the Blue Planet team, they talked about our approach to creating an integrated platform to create a unique sustainable waste management solution in Asia.
In the first of the Sustainable Singapore series, the radio interviewed Blue Planet as a business in the sustainability sector that are working to reduce the impacts of climate change. You can hear it here, on the Breakfast Huddle Podcast series.
"Sustainability is a sector that affects just about everything around us. Having said that, we see that this sector, and specially the waste management sector, is quite underserve," commented Madhujeet Chimni on the show.
He added: "While there is some amount of work that is happening, it is happening in silos. Therefore, what we are doing is we are creating a platform that cuts across the entire waste sector, focusing on different streams of waste, and bringing these companies together so we can build an end to end platform to deal with different kinds of waste."
Talking about the recent Zero Waste Masterplan released by Singapore, Martin said, "Blue Planet now brings technologies that align congruently with Singapore's three main pillars, which are going to be looking at plastic waste, food waste, electronic waste. We have all of those technologies that are innovative and sustainable to deal with those waste streams."
Martin also added that urban (or landfill) mining has been around in Europe because they are a repository of resource. Blue Planet wants to bring this to Asia and harness the resources present there by the combination of technologies that it has, and continues to acquire.
Blue Planet’s strategy is to grow in the region and become the leader in sustainable waste management solutions. We plan to continue engaging and partnering with governments and organisations to help them achieve their targets of resource efficiency and Zero Waste.
