15th November 2018 - Is the circular economy achievable in Asia?

 

According to the OECD, Asia will continue to be the world’s fastest-growing region through to 2030. As its middle classes grow, it has the opportunity to leapfrog Western nations in developing a circular economy.
 
Yet there remains a fundamental conflict of interest between politicians, the corporate world and the general populace. Governments must create a cohesive framework where materials are repurposed on a national level and move away from obsessions with GDP growth. Regulators must create an environment that gives businesses incentives to implement circular projects and work more effectively with enforcement agencies. And the private sector has to change its production models and create economic value from circular initiatives.
 
In its second year, The Economist Events’ Sustainability Summit Asia will take place on November 15th 2018 in Sunway City, Kuala Lumpur. The event will convene policymakers, scientists, business leaders, NGOs, entrepreneurs and academics to discuss what needs to be done for Asia to embrace the circular economy.
