About Event

The 3rd Indonesia Circular Economy Forum (ICEF) 2019 took place from 11-12 November 2019 in Pullman Jakarta Thamrin, Jakarta. The theme of the event is “Towards a Sustainable Future through Circular Business Practices.”

To cope with, and also, accelerate the growing trends of a sustainable lifestyle in society, ICEF seek to promote circular economy from a business practice perspective. A circular business model will encourage innovation strategy, creative entrepreneurship, and change management in various sectors. The sectors included in this year’s event are Food, Agriculture, Fashion, Urban Design and Infrastructure, Tourism, and Household Lifestyle

At the ICEF 2019, the Indonesian Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Panjaitan stated that one of the realization of circular economy in Indonesia is through achieving the target to reduce household waste by 30% and ensure treatment of 70% of household waste by 2025. The EU Ambassador to Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam Vincent Piket also mentionned the importance of collaboration between EU-Indonesia to assist Indonesia’s transition to circular economy.

Three main challenges that the respondents of ICEF 2019 considered are commitment, collaboration, and regulation are as follows:
  1.  Transition to a circular economy requires the commitment of all stakeholders accompanied with shared long-term perspectives as well as the personal drive and attitude at the individual level to implenet it on a daily basis.
  2. One of circular economy’s constant challenge is the need for encouraging greater collaboration, knowledge sharing, and networking between stakeholders.
  3. Fostering the circular economy touches upon and creates a great variety of legal questions in many different areas of law and regulation which have to be addressed and answered in an interdisciplinary approach.

Three recommendations delivered by respondents of ICEF 2019 are education, leadership, and regulation are as follows:
  1. The transition to a circular economy requires us to transform the way we create products, services, and systems, and is dependent on how we learn and apply those learnings in the real world, as individuals, teams, and organisations. Not only by it must be done by stakeholders, but also it must be incorporated into the formal education with the subject tailored to their respective levels.
  2. At a time of political and economic uncertainty, strong and visionary leadership is essential to achieving the transformation needed to usher in the inclusive and sustainable economic growth that of circular economy
  3. The government of Indonesia must work intensely with the legislative branch as well as relevant dialogue partners to ensure a circular economy framework that is truly beneficial for the environment. Furthermore, strong law enforcement is imminent.
