Greening the COVID-19 Response, Recovery and Redesign

Event: Asian Productivity Organization (APO) Productivity Talk
Date: 6 October 2020, Online

While COVID-19 has caused tremendous socioeconomic loss and suffering, it has also opened opportunities for an environmentally sustainable future.

This APO Talk with Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) Research Leader Dr. Eric Zusman, Programme Director Andre Mader, and Communications Coordinator Matthew Hengesbaugh suggests that the key to a sustainable future is a planning framework that greens the pandemic response, recovery, and redesign (the new 3Rs). They apply this new 3Rs framework to sustainable consumption and production and biodiversity.
