Statements from our Partners
"Greeneration (ICEF) is simply a bunch of young visionary Indonesians, pioneering and driving the transition from Linear to Circular Economy within the country. The result has been influential so far. But still, it can be more impactful by providing solution oriented guideline. Just imagining ICEF in collaboration with leading private sectors showing real CE practice that economically feasible, how impactful will it be?."

"Circular economy is a commitment from the current generation of industrialists to make sure that the future is worth to be seized by next generations. It's a matter of balancing between economic growth and responsibilities to improve social and environmental conditions. Surely it's not a panacea, but Circular Economy is the best we do have at the moment."
Ronny MustamuCircular Economy Consultant
"Indonesia has seen a tremendous growth in circularity initiatives in the last few years. For a good reason: system change, from linear to circular, unlocks enormous value for Indonesia’s economy, society and environment. ICEF is the place where these initiatives meet, allowing us to make Indonesia an even better place than it already is today."

"Circular economy is the economy of the future. But it will not happen overnight; we need champions, inspiration and to learn from each other. This is exactly what we get at The Indonesia Circular Economy Forum, and that is also why this Forum is so important."
Bjørnar Dahl HotvedtRoyal Norwegian Embassy in Jakarta
"Indonesia’s growth to become a high-income country should be accompanied by sustainable growth. Hopefully this forum serves as a platform for all stakeholders that concerns about waste management, circular economy, and sustainable development. When we manage to cooperate, progress can be expected."
Bambang PrijambodoKementerian PPN/Bappenas
"As a country bestowed with rich of natural resources, Indonesia needs to learn more from nature. Natural systems teach us that nature does not follow a linear approach. The Blue Economy Foundation (BEF) advocates Gunter Pauli's Blue Economy shares similar principles with circular economy. "

"The transformation from a regular concept to circuar economy is a quantum leap toward the future. In this transformation should be involved milenials who will lead this Earth in the next of ten to twenty years from now. Indonesia Circular Economy Forum has to be a champion and has a significant role on this leap."
Agus PambagioCircular Economy Consultant
"The transition from a linear concept to circular economy is the only step towards the future. Circular economy has become a major element in EU industrial activities and economic strategy. In a world with limited resources, the transition to a circular economy is also very likely to occur in Indonesia. We can help to enhance and facilitate these changes together."
H.E. Vincent PiketHead of the Delegation of the European Union to Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam
"The goal to conserve the environment while also to improve human welfare is stipulated comprehensively on the concept of circular economy. Pollution of land, water, and air must be prevented from the beginning to the end of activities in line with the optimization of materials uses.
The Indonesia Circular Economy Forum is good initiative to embrace all stakeholders in promoting circular economy in Indonesia."
Dida GarderaHead of Environmental Engineering Alumni Association of Bandung Institute of Technology (IATL ITB)
"If we want to achieve the SDGs, a transition to a circular economy is key! The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands has been involved since the 1st Indonesia Circular Economy Forum (ICEF) in 2017. To create an economy that is truly 100% circular, we need to partner with others dedicated to reshaping the global economy. That is why we have partnered with ICEF, a meaningful platform to bring contributors together."
H.E. Lambert GrijnsAmbassador of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands
