It's been 10 years since Eco-Business was established in Singapore, in the run up to the landmark COP15 climate change meeting in Copenhagen. We've come a long way since our cosy launch at the Asian Civilisations Museum in 2009 to become Asia Pacific's leading voice on all matters related to sustainable development today.

We would love to mark this milestone with you, old crew and new friends alike. We have some exciting announcements to share, including:

• A revamped website with content aligned with the 17 SDGs

• The launch of a new non-profit arm EB IMPACT

• A new editorial series on chief sustainability officers in the region, and

• The 2019 edition of our flagship climate initiative, Changing Course as we head to the Arctic

Come be the first to find out about what's happening in the region in sustainable development and engage in a fireside chat with our special guest, Bradley Busetto, Acting Director of the newly-launched new UNDP Global Centre on Technology, Innovation and Sustainable Development in Singapore.

Grab a drink, enjoy sumptuous bites, mingle with the community and have a night of great conversations and impactful connections - all on us!

Registration

BlackRock made headlines recently when it announced a partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to launch the BGF Circular Economy Fund of US$20 million, marking the proliferation of circular economy concepts in our modern economy, which advocates a circular approach to managing our limited resources. Research has suggested that if Europe were to adopt a more circular economy it could expect to receive €1.6 trillion in net benefits. Separate research indicates a circular economy could boost UK GDP by £29bn and create 205,000 new British jobs.

What about Asia? Where should investors begin looking for circular economy investing opportunities in a region that is rapidly growing and grappling with responsible resource management?   This panel invites the world’s forward-looking investors to discuss their investment approach, successes and challenges of putting their money where the circular economy is.
