Orange ASEAN Circular Economy
Kuala Lumpur, 19 September – 8 October 2016
Climate change, resource depletion, pollution, energy inefficiencies and waste management are major challenges in Southeast Asia. Innovative solutions are needed that can guide the transition into a circular economy in the ASEAN region. Think of: waste-to-resource, waste-to-energy, sustainable logistics and new business cases for a circular economy. The participants of the Orange Factory are challenged to support entrepreneurs from the Netherlands and Southeast Asia to improve their sustainability or to introduce their sustainable solutions to the region. The results will be presented during the Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference and the Malaysian Dutch Business Counsel Sustainability Awards Ceremony.
