The ASEAN Circular Economy Platform is now a reality
The ASEAN Circular Economy platform (ACESP) was launched by ASEAN Deputy Secretary General Satvinder Singh and European Commission DG Environment Director General Florika Fink-Hooijer on 27 June 2023.
Its aim is to help ASEAN Member States achieve sustainable consumption and production by accelerating transition to a circular economy.
On this occasion Singh and Fink-Hooijer, with EU Ambassador to ASEAN Igor Driesmans, held a bilateral meeting to share experiences on circular and green economy and explore ways to strengthen ASEAN-EU collaboration.
ACESP is part of the EU-ASEAN Partnership on Circular Economy, endorsed by the ASEAN Senior Officials on the Environment (ASOEN) in 2018, and is hosted by the ASEAN Centre for Sustainable Development Studies and Dialogue (ACSDSD) in Bangkok, Thailand.
The establishment of the Platform was inspired by the success of the EU Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform in providing access to CE good practices and strategies.
