Rhea Singhal is the founder and CEO of Ecoware, India’s first and largest sustainable packaging company, she is a World Economic Forum ‘Young Global Leader’ and has recently been honoured with The Nari Shakti Puraskar, the highest civilian honour for women in India.

Rhea’s first exposure to business was within Pfizer’s Oncology team in the UK where she worked for several years in a commercial role with much success. After moving back to India, Rhea founded Ecoware, with the objective of improving India’s plastic menace; Ecoware disrupted the food packing industry by introducing a fully compostable alternative to plastic and styrofoam.

Her challenges included setting up a consumer business, overcoming the stigma associated with being a female business owner and being a non native speaker. Despite these hurdles she convinced generational traders across India to sell a product they had never seen and which cannibalized their current revenue. One of her greatest successes has been convincing the Indian Railways, the largest food service operator in India, to make the switch to Ecoware packaging.

Rhea Singhal has been featured in various publications – Forbes, Hindustan Times, Economic Times, India Today and CNBC. She is a recognised leader in a number of fields not limited to circular economy, sustainability and climate change. As a mother to two young children, Rhea knows first-hand the harmful impact of pollution on the most vulnerable and this is her constant motivation to do better.

Rhea has been the Chairperson for the Indian Women Network – CII (Northern region) since June 2020. The goal is to create an ecosystem in India, which inspires, invigorates, and empowers women and brings them to the forefront of their respective spheres of activity.

Rhea Singhal is an inspiring leader with extensive experience and recognised credentials in delivering positive results; with a cause in mind to improve the world. Rhea can support businesses in many areas, inspiring people to do more, think differently and make better choices.

A commercial strategist with a history in pharmaceutical and FMCG, Rhea Singhal has the experience and ability to know; what to do, how to do it and when to make it happen. Rhea supports organisations globally and can be available virtually or in person. Rhea is a global thought leader on climate change, inclusive growth and diversity, she has spoken at many forums across the globe delivering her message and has been invited as a mentor, judge and role model at several leading universities.
