Towards Environmental Sustainability

65% of the total Asian human population by 2050 will be urbanised from the current 35%, stressing existing infrastructures, pressurising natural habitats and ecologies. Energy and material consumption will escalate in line with urbanization, increasing greenhouse gasses, continuing environmental pollution, degrading and destroying verdant irreplaceable green belts and their ecosystems. Asia’s immediate needs are too obvious – to balance the fulfillment of human needs with the protection of the natural environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but in the indefinite future.

EnviroAsia2009 seeks to champion the marketplace for environmental, ecological and clean technologies across 4 major industry segments – Waste, Water, Energy and Air, to facilitate sustainable development in ASEAN and beyond. The recent changes in global environmental stewardship augurs well – in timing and direction to a more buoyant Asian environmental marketplace where technology stakeholders are able to deploy new technologies to the benefit of societies through partners and government.

“Mobilising and re-focusing the global economy towards investments in clean technologies and ‘natural’ infrastructure such as forests and soils is the best bet for real growth, combating climate change and triggering an employment boom in the 21 st century”
- United Nations Environmental Program, Green Economy Initiative
