One Planet was founded by Ms. Anupriya Aggarwal with the aim of bringing light to the issues pertaining to sustainability and climate change in the context of developing countries. Anupriya is a Research Scholar at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India. She is also the Senior Project Manager of Team Zero Waste, IIT Bombay, a student-led organization whose aim is to reduce the landfill waste from IIT Bombay to zero, hence moving towards a sustainable campus.

She has co-authored a book on Business Management for undergraduate students where she has written about sustainable business practices. She writes academic and popular science articles about sustainability, solid waste management, climate change, and minimalism particularly in the context of developing countries like India which have been featured in several places including the Tata Trust website and the award-winning ezine Fundametics.
