Mohammad Anisur Rahman, Senior Director, BRAC Enterprises, said, “BRAC Recycle Handmade Paper and BRAC Nursery Enterprises are leading forces in zero waste management, transforming waste into valuable resources. We have recycled 65 metric tons of waste paper and produced 1.5 million products. Meanwhile, BRAC Nursery's innovative approach turns food waste into fertilizer, exemplifying its commitment to a greener, more efficient future.

Elaborating on PRAN-RFL’s initiative, its CEO, Ahsan Khan Chaudhary said, “Zero waste management, at its core, is our commitment to the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle. Innovation in packaging to reduce the amount of plastic used, reusing wood dust from a furniture factory to make wood plastic composite (WPC) doors and making products such as flower tops, waste bins and dustpans. Recycling plastic waste are some of them. Examples of our efforts to manage waste better.”

Waste management at InterContinental Dhaka is an important aspect of its operations and sustainability efforts. Ashwani Nair, General Manager of InterContinental Dhaka, said, “In our journey towards zero waste, every small action has the power to preserve our planet and shape a brighter future. Every choice we make is a step toward a cleaner, greener world. “We are dedicated to establishing InterContinental Dhaka as a leading force in sustainable practices while setting the benchmark for the hospitality industry.”

Enterprises such as Redress.Recycle, Arbab Group, BRAC Recycle Handmade Paper, BRAC Nursery Enterprise, Mean Corporation, Lamati and Jottner Dokan participated in the 'Westwise' fair. These pioneering initiatives are working with textile waste, food waste, paper waste and plastic waste. They demonstrated their processes and also talked about their challenges such as competing with non-waste products and finding market linkages.
