Navigating Environmental Responsibility Landscape

Event Location:

Novotel Yangon Max

On the 25th of January 2024, EuroCham Myanmar will organise an enlightening talk together with our member WWF-Myanmar on the significant role and responsibility of businesses in preventing and reducing pollution.

Pollution is a serious environmental and social problem that affects the health and well-being of people and ecosystems. Businesses have a significant role and responsibility in preventing and reducing pollution, as they are often the main sources and consumers of pollutants. In this talk, we will briefly discuss three types of pollution that businesses should be aware of and address: water pollution, plastic pollution and carbon emission.
