Circular Economy Asia

Your implementation experts

 We have Asia covered

A region made up of 24 countries, more than half of the world’s population, the engine room of the world.


Here at Circular Economy Asia (CEA), I’m excited to begin the next stage in our journey towards implementing circular economy projects and programs in different regions.

This stage is a two-step process, starting with relocating to a new country and, second, getting down to the hard work of building CEA into the organisation where it can fulfil its mission and vision. 

Circular Economy Asia would not still be here today if it was not for the generosity of donors who kept the organisation alive and kicking.


We’re working on establishing a globally recognised circular economy foundation course that provides you with the basic concepts to further develop skills specific to the circular economy and sustainability.

If you’re a subject matter expert or someone who just wants to be part of this project, visit the Skills page and register your interest.

Supply chains are the arteries of the Circular Rs, ensure Waste-as-a-Resource functions and must become resource-efficient.

Skills for the Future

We are developing a number of skills training courses to equip people to be part of a circular and sustainable world.

Circular Asia Magazine

Circular Asia magazine is the go-to publication on the circular economy. Published every month, 12 editions per year we cover topics related to the development and implementation of the circular economy with a readership aimed at C-Suite, policy and decision-makers, NGOs and government agencies across the Asian region. 

We Are Full of Ideas

Confused about the circular economy? It’s simple. It’s about resource efficiency and resource management because we live in a finite world. 

It starts with how we take or extract the natural resources, then design, manufacture and dispose of the products we buy and the services we use. We have the technology, the knowledge and capability to recover the resources we consume. Once recovered several options are available – any one of the Circular Rs or reprocessing. This is beyond recycling! This is the circular economy.
