Collaboration for Action: The Power to Drive Circular Economy

Resource scarcity, climate change, and other environmental problems have affected our lives one way or another. This issue throws spotlight on attempts to foster collaboration for the sustainability of the world. We begin with some of the key topics discussed at SD Symposium 10 Years “Circular Economy: Collaboration for Action.

Another collaborative endeavor featured in this issue is the partnership between SCG and Betagro to develop an innovative plastic resin for food packaging.
