Established in 2019, GemCorp seeks to strengthen the recycling ecosystem in a just and equitable manner with a focus on efficient logistics, provision of finance for working capital, upliftment, education, and on-ground action.
GemCorp is aimed at uplifting the lives of waste reclaimers at the grassroots level with complete traceability and transparency across the value chain in India and other developing nations.
GemCorp aims to aid the transition to a circular economy in India by improving the working and living conditions of reclaimers who scavenge plastic waste to find recyclable or reusable materials. GemCorp has touched the lives of more than 1,000 reclaimers and their families in the informal sector in India. GemCorp provides training, timely wages, social security, and recreational activities for families to enhance their lives and prevent child labor, ultimately bringing the reclaimers to an organized environment. GemCorp provided baling machines free of charge to the collection centers, a safe and healthy working environment, government identification, working capital assistance, and other benefits making the waste collection process organized and safer. The top reputed firms audit all its facilities to ensure a transparent and ethical supply chain. GemCorp’s parent company, Gemini Corporation, with its 33 years of expertise in recycling, has helped introduce the best global recycling practices in India through these initiatives.
Furthermore, UniGem, an in-house developed application backed by blockchain, helps in providing end-to-end traceability of the waste collected. UniGem is backed by an ingenuitive financial mechanism to substantially accelerate the collection and segregation of waste in developing economies.
