Clean Environment Leaders Summit
June 1 – 4, Singapore
With waste volumes of all kinds increasing in the Asia Pacific region, Singapore believes that it is timely for a serious dialogue to begin on how the region's cities will overcome the challenges of waste management. While much of the current focus is on water and energy issues, waste is an important part of the equation. We cannot solve one part of this equation without solving the other parts. The water-waste-energy nexus will therefore be a key challenge for Asia's growing urban regions.
The Clean Environment Leaders Summit gathers the world's top environment leaders from the public and private sectors, international organisations and think-tanks, to discuss global environment issues, share knowledge, and shape thought leadership and policies on developing sustainable environmental management solutions. At the CESS 2014, expect more than 500 leaders to come together for a meaningful discourse on environmental issues. For more information, visit http://www.cleanenvirosummit.sg/.
