About The Forum

Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Climate change and sustainability and its environmental, social and economic impact continue to rise up the agendas of governments and organizations around the world.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable  future for all. They address the global challenges, humanity face, including those related to climate action, environmental degradation, prosperity, poverty alleviation, affordable and clean energy. Many global companies are using these as framework to guide their sustainability strategies. Today’s global waste and recycling industries are valued at USD265.65 billion.

In recent years, the concept of “circular economy” has taken a huge following. A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy in which resources in use are kept for as long as possible, extracting the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recovering and reusing products and materials.

The focus of the circular economy extends beyond issues related to material management and covers other aspects, including energy efficiency and conservation, land management, soil protection and water.
