Karo Sambhav has been a strong partner to IFC’s ‘India E-waste Program’. Not only is Karo making an impact at the grassroots level by providing cleaner and more sustainable livelihoods but is impacting change across the value chain and is today a strong voice in the sector.

Karo Sambhav leads the way by demonstrating how the informal sector can find its place in a more sustainable solution by helping informal collectors to become a part of a transparent and open economy, thereby making them recognised economic actors who play a crucial role for the future of a large section of society. 

As one of the largest distributors of I.T products in India, we felt vulnerable to the multiple layers of EPR compliance. Karo Sambhav has improved our ease of business, by providing us with an end-to-end EPR solution.”

“Xiaomi’s engagement with Karo Sambhav helps it to strengthen electronic waste channelisation. Xiaomi commends Karo Sambhav’s exhaustive school programmes targeting a behavioural change among young children, thought leaders of tomorrow. Karo’s extensive execution checklist brings in clarity and transparency in the collection and recycling supply chain.”
