Action & Advisory firm driving the Circular Economy in Asia – towards a World without Waste
About Gone Adventurin
Gone Adventurin was born out of our founding team’s journeys across Asia to learn what is needed to integrate sustainability into core business.
Since they started in 2011 they’ve enabled dozens of businesses, government agencies and NGOs to tackle important environmental challenges while helping grow their bottom line.
Across their work one issue kept popping up consistently – waste. Each year our world throws away USD 80-120 billion worth of post-consumer waste. By 2050 we’ll have more plastics in the oceans than fish. Asia is the biggest contributor to this profound mismanagement. Gone Adventurin is on a mission to tackle the fast-growing streams of packaging, food and electronic materials in Asia and to help unlock business opportunities from post-consumer waste. Gone Adventurin enables companies to design circular business strategies, implement deployments to recycle post-consumer waste and create closed loop supply chains so that nothing goes to waste, and engage stakeholders through storytelling. Gone Adventurin envisions a world without waste.
