Drishti Earth is a sustainability solutions company working on some of the toughest issues facing India today
Climate Change is a real problem which effects the economic, social and environmental development of the world, especially for developing countries like India. Some of the issues that need to be addressed are Food Security, Waste Management, Energy Reliance, Safe Water Availability and Coastal Resilience. At Drishti Earth, we are in the business of coming up with innovative solutions to build adaptation and mitigation capability.
We are very passionate about achieving environmentally sustainable development. We believe that the way forward is through new technologies and greater innovation. Hence we are striving to bring cutting edge products and technologies within your reach.
We are currently focused on Urban Waste Management which is a pressing issue facing India today because:
- Not enough municipal capacity to treat the quantities of waste being generated leading to most waste ending up in unsanitary landfills
- Collection and transport of waste from generators to landfills/treatment centres is extremely costly inefficient
- Waste is not being optimally treated for its best possible use, causing unnecessary loss of valuable resources to the economy
- There is no scalable decentralised solution to effectively address this issue
THE WASTANATOR: Our unique waste management system allows for Municipal Solid Waste to be efficiently managed at a decentralised level, at the source of waste generation.
