Circular Economy

There is a growing recognition that our current take-make-dispose business model won’t work in the long run. Change is vital. The project combines industry and regional insights with corporate global citizenship to ensure the design of future materials is collaborative and avoids waste

Objectives

The aims of the project are to:

  • Trigger a fundamental change in the use of materials in key plastics such as PET, polypropylene and polyethylene, with the aim of creating value, new jobs and avoiding unnecessary waste
  • Advance industry strategy on scaling the circular economy, and enabling key regions in Europe, China and ASEAN to position themselves as Circular Economy Hubs
  • Enhance the Forum’s value proposition for regional membership
