Dear Members and Friends

In last week's MemberCONNECT I shared about your Chamber delivering its very first television forum on collaborative innovation. This week, I'm delighted to share that your Chamber has achieved another first.

The inaugural SICC Circular Economy Forum took place on 17 October 2018 at Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre. Themed "Commercial Opportunities in Sustainability", the forum demonstrated how profitable businesses can be built and sustained while doing right by our planet and our species.

The event was attended by 100 C-suite executives, sustainability leaders, Singapore government representatives and members of the Diplomatic Corps. Delegates, speakers and partners have all said that the forum was meaningful. We'll be sustaining the momentum achieved at the forum with a position paper on the Circular Economy in Singapore to be launched next month.

A big thank you to our Main Sponsor and Networking Lunch Sponsor Honkajoki CES for its generous support and compelling case study. It is a gift to the world. Many thanks, too, to our co-sponsor Chevron Phillips for its generous support.

I also want to thank all our speakers and panellists for their insights and expertise not forgetting our knowledge partners Gone Adventurin and engeco and venue partner Suntec Singapore for their tremendous support.

Visit our web site for post-event highlights and a recap of key learning points from the forum. Visit our Facebook page for event photos.

With warmest regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
