Asian Development Bank, China Everbright Environment Form Strategic Partnership for Ocean Health in Asia

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and China Everbright Environment Group Limited (CEEGL) today signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to cooperate on efforts to promote the circular economy and protect ocean health in Asia.

Under the agreement, ADB and CEEGL will jointly promote the development of enhanced solid waste management systems in Asia to encourage public-private partnerships (PPP) in waste collection, transportation, and recycling, and to reduce land-based sources of marine debris and related impacts to marine life, coastal livelihoods, and human health.
