Wasted resources are toxifying our oceans, landscapes, and the air we breathe, this is further accelerated by the increase in overall plastic consumption globally. This complex combination urgently calls for a resource transformation- a systemic approach to building a future focused on resource optimisation, economic growth, and sustainable development.

The potential disruption from climate change to both the economy and the ecological systems human beings rely on is a real and significant risk. Global resources are valuable and finite, and the current linear economic model is outdated and damaging. If the global population continues to consume at the current rate, staying below the 1.5 degrees global warming target will be impossible.

Meanwhile, the effects of climate change are becoming more evident than ever before. As countries across the world grapple with the implications of a warming world, global leaders are increasingly compelled to make choices that have long-term climate impact at their core.

How can global mindsets be shifted from climate awareness to climate action? What needs to be done to transform archaic wasteful systems into clean economies? How can nations input EPR frameworks that work for their people and avoid costly U-turns when building up a circular economy? What does a resource transformation look like, and how can it be achieved with smart, technological solutions?

The Resource Transformation Dialogue 2021 will provide the platform for high-level decision makers to discuss the state of our waste and resource systems as we look at the opportunities and challenges across Asia and beyond in the next decade.​

Organised by Eco-Business and supported by TOMRA - ‘The leap of modern recycling’ will offer a lively public discussion on the role that all stakeholders can play to address this important issue.
