Rhea Mazumdar Singhal is the founder and CEO of Ecoware, India’s first and largest sustainable packaging company. Due to her pioneering work in transforming the environmental impact of India’s packaging industry, Rhea was appointed A World Economic Forum ‘Young Global Leader’. Moreover, she has been commended with The Nari Shakti Puraskar, the highest civilian honour for women in India.
Rhea was previously a member of Pfizer’s Oncology team in the UK. There she worked for several years in a commercial role with much success. After moving back to India, Rhea founded Ecoware. Her objective was to improve India’s plastic menace. Furthermore, Ecoware disrupted the food packing industry by introducing a fully compostable alternative to plastic and styrofoam.
In establishing Ecoware, Rhea had to overcome the stigma of being a female business owner and a non-native speaker. Despite these challenges, Rhea convinced generational traders across India to modernise their packaging and confront the environmental impact of their work. One of Rhea’s greatest successes was convincing the largest food service operator in India, the Indian Railways, to switch to Ecoware packaging. Consequently, they revolutionised their effect upon the planet whilst growing profit margins substantially.
Such publications as Forbes, Hindustan Times, Economic Times, India Today and CNBC have featured Rhea. Moreover, she is a recognised leader in several fields, not limited to the circular economy, sustainability and climate change. As a mother to two young children, Rhea cares deeply about the harmful impact that pollution can have on the most vulnerable. This motivates her to continue to work with the industry, to do better for the planet.
Rhea is a global thought leader on climate change and inclusive growth. She’s keen to share her wealth of corporate and commercial expertise.
Rhea has spoken at many training events and forums across the globe on behalf of some of the world’s largest organisations. Additionally, she has acted as a mentor, assessor, and role model at leading universities. Rhea can support virtual invitations as well as in-person.
