Seminar: Circular Economy and Sustainable Challenges for Southeast Asian Markets

Achieving zero waste and 100% circularity have become popular business goals, however achieving them can be resource-intensive and lead to actions that compromise overall sustainability. At this 1-day seminar, we explore diverse perspectives on the Circular Economy and sustainability beyond the environmental lens, including strategic implementation strategies, economies of scale, ESG compliance and much more.

This seminar is designed for professionals and stakeholders within the plastics and rubber sector who are interested in addressing sustainability challenges and exploring circular economy principles; all seeking to gain insights into sustainable practices and solutions specific to the Southeast Asian markets.
