Makati Business Club MBC Circular Economy Program

About the Project

In partnership with the Embassy of the Netherlands in the Philippines, MBC strives to help businesses transition to a circular economy by facilitating business-to-business and business-to-government plastic waste management projects.

MBC aims to promote and operate for a healthy and resilient Philippine economic recovery and recognizes the importance of circular economy practices to create green jobs and address plastic pollution.

By facilitating collaborations, amplifying and unifying voices, and advocating for action, we engage key stakeholders in navigating the transition to a circular economy.
