Webinar 144: Circular Economy in Japan

October 18 2019

New Date: 18-10-19 | 10:00 - 11:00 AM CET

What are the characteristics of the Japanese Circular Economy in terms of policy, business and trade? 

The Japanese government has taken significant steps to develop a circular economy policy framework. It incorporates the Japanese concepts of a Sound Material-Cycle Society (SMCS) and the 3Rs (reduce reuse and recycle) to promote waste minimisation and effective utilisation of resources, driven by a concern about the lack of landfill sites and the need for effective resource use. The Japanese government also has a long history of developing waste management legislation to ensure proper waste management and address illegal acts. In light of this, a very finely tuned policy framework for establishing a SMCS and a fundamental plan have been formulated. In parallel, Japanese businesses have developed actions and technologies to respond the SMCS policies. It is vital to understand Japanese unique circular economy system in order to collaborate with Japanese partners in this sector.

The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking to collaborate with Japanese business in the area of circular economy.
