There is an urgency to reduce global carbon emission, but a long-term solution and not a quick fix is needed. Governments worldwide, especially in Europe, have been looking at how they can create and secure green energy. Switching to greener solutions is inadequate as we must also ensure that the green energy used to eliminate carbon footprint is circular and does not end up in a landfill. Improving energy efficiency is also equally important. When it comes to sustainability, it is necessary to think of circularity, energy efficiency, and green energy as a collective.

The Packaging Committee of EuroCham Singapore in collaboration with the Sustainability Committee and SICC’s Circular Economy Interest Group bring you the following panel of experts to shed some light on this topic.

After spending half a century in Shipping and Heavy Lift transport I have found a new challenge in Renewable Energy, with a focus on Waste treatment. Developing solutions for devastating landfills and to help eliminate the negative impacts of our linear economy. Energy Renewed is lobbying hard to realize a demonstration plant of a small scale Waste2Energy system. With this, remote and small communities can then convert their waste, including plastics, into useful and clean energy. I very much appreciate the subject of this webinar: Building an “Alternative economy as part of our Circular Economy”. Looking forward to discussing with you all, on how to steer away from the abyss and built back better.
