Founder, Circular Economy Asia (CEA)
Circular Economy Asia (CEA) was founded by Ms Adrienna Zsakay in 2016. Her journey began when she
became interested in infrastructure design for recyclable resource recovery collection systems. From there, it
was an easy transition to the circular economy and the founding of CEA in Australia with a registered branch
in Malaysia known as Circular Asia Association.
In early 2020 Ms Zsakay launched Circular Skills, an online education platform dedicated to skills
development for the circular economy. CAA’s other activities include Resource Recovery (Waste-as-a-
Resource) and developing circular and sustainable supply chains.
Ms Zsakay has lived in several different countries across the Asian region and has a BA(Asian Studies &
Politics) from the University of Western Australia and studied International and Asian food law at Michigan
State University. She recently completed an online course on Systems Engineering from the University of
NSW in Australia.
