This study attempts to map the linkages between Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and waste management businesses. It also tries to understand the role that waste management businesses can play in achieving the common goals through the case of a waste management firm in Mumbai (India). Interviews with the firm’s key personnel are used for data collection in addition to other external sources. Using content analysis, we find that the firm’s presence can be seen on all the 17 SDGs. While 12 out of the 17 SDGs are impacted due to the business operations, the remaining five SDGs are affected due to the societal orientation of the firm. These impacts are weak, moderate or strong in nature. The findings of this study can be useful to policymakers in framing policies that can help businesses in this area and achieve SDGs at the same time. JEL Classification codes: L31; Q53; Q56; Q58
