In 2020 EuroCham embraced the topic of European Excellence in Sustainability with a variety of activities including the recent publication of a position paper on the topic of “Circular Economy: Closing the loop in electronic, food and packaging waste“. The position paper was created in collaboration with KPMG and is a part of EuroCham’s 2020-2021 Sustainability Whitebook. The Ministry for Sustainability & the Environment and the National Environment Agency has graciously provided EuroCham with the opportunity to share ideas and insights relating to the position paper in a closed-door meeting. The focus of this meeting will be on packaging waste and plastic waste.

This is a closed-door meeting. If you are keen to attend, please contact our Committee & Membership Manager Ms Michelle Kristensen at michelle@eurocham.org.sg.
