About WasteNXT

WasteNXT by the Massive Earth Foundation is an interactive forum for investors, entrepreneurs, policymakers and corporates to engage and discuss opportunities in waste sector.

India has drawn the world’s attention with its high paced urbanization and industrialization. A renewed focus on sustainable growth and development has become imperative as India strives to maintain its high GDP growth rate to achieve developed country status by the year 2022. However, the flip side of higher economic growth has resulted in increased consumption of natural resources, increased waste generation and hence ecological degradation.

With our increasing awareness of the detrimental environmental effects of current waste disposal methods, there is a significant onus of accountability for effective waste management.

Realizing the need to overcome current challenges on waste management, Massive Earth Foundation is organizing the first edition of WasteNXT
