Dear Members and Friends

I want to share an article I posted on LinkedIn last week because the topic is both important and urgent and the implications for business are revolutionary. No, I'm not talking about Revolution 4.0 with its focus on digitalization, augmented intelligence and robotics. I'm talking about Revolution 5.0 which needs embracing now.

In less than 12 years there will be 9+ billion humans on planet earth. Just think of what this will mean. Exponentially increased pressure on, and competition for, resources of all kinds. How can we leave this sort of inheritance to succeeding generations and not do anything today? We just can't. We have to act now. Link to full article in LinkedIn.

These are all reasons why you should support your Chamber's inaugural Circular Economy Forum on 17 Oct 2018. Business people need to realize that they can grow and sustain profitable businesses while doing right by our planet and our species. Click here for event registration details and the early bird rate which expires on 28 Sept.

Thanks for being part of the solution not part of the problem!

With warmest regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
