Are we consuming our way into extinction by chowing down on planetary boundaries? By 2050, 2.5 billion more people will live in cities, demanding more food, products and conveniences than ever before.

Asia’s most highly-anticipated sustainability challenge is back. We’ll kick off  2020’s global search for ground-breaking solutions and unveil the themes for the third edition of The Liveability Challenge, presented by Temasek Foundation and organised by Eco-Business.

Join us on 14 January 2020 as we debate what it means to create a sustainable, urban future.

Agenda

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.
