Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR)
Be responsible and sustainable business by reducing your environmental plastic footprint.
Earth5R offers a solution to the growing waste crisis by unlocking the hidden value of waste.
We partner with companies committed to environmentally preferred waste management practices. By commissioning stringent audits on all of our partners’ operations, we do everything we can to promote the effective reduction and disposal of plastic waste.
Purchasing offsets is not a license to pollute or maintain the status quo. If we want to succeed, we need to work together for UN Sustainable Development Goals along the way. You can mark your merchandise as a Plastic Neutral Product. You can mention the quantity of plastic that your company offsets in your CSR Reports.
When consumers purchase your products which are made out of recycled plastic, you enable them to be part of your solution. As a company you can successful commit to the issue of Sustainability by steering clear of the term sustainability.
We believe, companies should contribute towards economic sustainability too. Our models provide opportunities in development and environmental protection, as we empower people from the bottom of the pyramid in our circular economy models.
In our Waste Management projects more than 50% of our task force consists of women employees. We also take special considerations in empowering other underrepresented communities.
Studies show that post Covid-19 consumers are eager to support companies that value sustainability and sustainable development..

Earth5R’s EPR support program is integrated into the local Circular Economy program. The aim of Earth5R’s supportive Extended Producer Responsibility program is to ensure the recovery and recycling of packaging waste in the most economically efficient and ecologically sound manner.
Under Earth5R’s EPR support program the recovery, sorting and recycling of packaging are done in a decentralised manner in order to reduce the carbon footprint and reduce storage and transportation costs. The cost saved can be passed on to the beneficiaries at the bottom of the pyramid.
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a strategy designed to promote the integration of environmental costs associated with goods throughout their life cycles into the market price of the products.
Earth5R uses an army of waste pickers working at the grassroots level to leverage the Extended Producer Responsibility program. That way Earth5R’s solid waste management value chain is utilised to make a positive social and environmental impact. Earth5R has several innovative waste recovery and recycling schemes for brands looking for Extended Producer Responsibility program.
It’s important to have strong data collection system to assess impacts of Extended Producer Responsibility schemes. If EPR programs are not adequately controlled or monitored they can affect effective functioning and producer compliance. Weight-based fee structures can lead to a focus on light-weighting, which risks rewarding lighter but less recyclable materials.
EPR measures should incentivise packaging producers towards eco-design.
The growing costs to manage plastics in the environment are becoming more widely understood. The cost of addressing litter and plastic pollution has been increasing. The price tag and logistical challenges of dealing with packaging materials – through collection, recycling, disposal, river, lake and beach cleanup, street cleaning, and outreach and education – are spiralling upward.
A great Extended Producer Responsibility policy could deepen its scope, and strengthen the financial incentives for ecodesign. Economic incentives should be developed to favour circular products and business models, e.g. through harmonised criteria and the further application of modulated fees to support the waste hierarchy and incentivise more environmentally sustainable products.
