Circular Economy Conference 2022

The circular economy is a model of production and consumption, which involves sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products as long as possible. In this way, the life cycle of products is extended. In practice, it implies reducing waste to a minimum.

The circular economy is also a systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. We must transform every element of our take-make-waste system: how we manage resources, how we make and use products, and what we do with the materials afterwards.

The CEC 2022 is part of Star Media Group’s knowledge-sharing and educational initiative and is supported by platinum sponsors UOB Malaysia Bhd and Malaysia Timber Council.

Advancing sustainability is a main theme under the 12th Malaysia Plan and the nation has outlined plans for the circular economy and waste management, including the implementation of an Extended Producer
Responsibility (“EPR”) scheme for e-waste.

As such, Malaysia’s circular economy is poised to experience greater growth, having already been recognized as a regional hub for recycling of metals such as steel, copper and aluminum. To simplify sustainable financing for business, UOB has developed a dedicated framework and solutions for businesses in the “5R’s” of the circular economy. This session will cover the new requirements and opportunities for players in the e-waste and metals recycling ecosystem, and
the Bank’s experience in supporting a similar EPR scheme in Singapore.
