Tata Daewoo's Journey to
Minimize Plastic Waste
Foster Recycling
Tata Daewoo faced a challenge in effectively managing and disposing of plastic waste, which posed environmental risks and increased costs. The company recognized the need to enhance its recycling efforts to minimize waste going to landfills and align with the government's Net Zero objective.
Tata Daewoo implemented a comprehensive plan to improve the recycling of plastic waste throughout the organization. They focused on collecting and processing various types of plastic debris, including waste from products, packaging, and office equipment. To achieve this, the company partnered with a reputable waste recycling business, Chang Baek Company, which employed techniques like crushing and melting to recycle plastic garbage.
Behavior change
The implementation process involved adopting appropriate measures to enhance waste collection and separation processes, ensuring proper sorting of waste, and raising employee awareness about segregation and waste management procedures. Tata Daewoo prioritized educating its employees on the importance of recycling and waste reduction.
The project yielded significant results, allowing Tata Daewoo to substantially decrease the amount of plastic waste sent to landfills and incineration. Over the years, the company witnessed a positive trend in waste plastic recovery - 4.9 tons in 2020, and a remarkable increase to 6 tons in 2022. Moreover, the recycling efforts resulted in cost savings for Tata Daewoo. By avoiding expenses related to waste treatment, the company saved KRW 6,650,000 during the fiscal year 2021-2022.
