Recykal, Asia’s 1st Circular Economy Marketplace, has been selected as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers 2022”. The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers are early to growth-stage companies worldwide that are involved in innovating solutions to the most pressing issues of the world. Technology Pioneers are the world’s top innovators, building our digital fabric and shaping tomorrow’s global trends.
With this recognition, Abhay Deshpande, Founder of Recykal, will be invited to participate in World Economic Forum activities, events, and discussions throughout the year. Recykal will also contribute to Forum initiatives over the next two years, working with global leaders to help address key industry and societal issues.
“We are honored to be acknowledged as a technology pioneer by the World Economic Forum,” said Abhay Deshpande. “Digitizing the waste management sector paves the path for an inclusive, ethical, circular ecosystem and organized employment for waste workers within the informal economy. Recykal is revolutionizing the way waste is perceived globally and envisions a world pursuing and promoting ethical circularity.”
While Recykal currently caters to the Indian market, the future goals are to tap into the $100 billion potential that the waste management industry holds. As an integral part of the Technology Pioneers Community, Recykal plans to engage with the public- and private-sector leaders and contribute new solutions to overcome the current crisis and build future resiliency.
Technology Pioneers have been selected based on the community’s selection criteria, which include innovation, impact, leadership, and the company’s relevance with the World Economic Forum’s Platforms.
