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 we started in 2011 we’ve enabled dozens of businesses, government agencies and NGOs to tackle important environmental challenges while helping grow their bottom line.
Across our 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.
We are 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. We envision a world without waste.
Regional and local waste management landscape research, stakeholder mapping, identifying waste value chains, relevant local government regulations and global trends.
Data collection and analysis on post-consumer waste streams (e.g. material flow analysis), waste audits and composition studies, identification and mapping of key stakeholders (e.g. government, NGOs), locations and roadmap for deployment.
Development of strategies or policies for intervention and risk reduction plans in alignment with material flow analysis, waste composition studies, local requirements and regulations.
Specific strategies or policies include packaging and food waste reduction, packaging and food recyclability, collection and recycling targets and KPIs, technology recommendations for recycling and financial investments required.
Design and implementation of six months to a multi-year deployment with stakeholders and business model development.
This includes analysing technical and operational requirements around feedstock quality and quantity, CAPEX/OPEX and project financing feasibility analysis, access and connections to local waste management and recycling technology companies to develop supply chain for recycled materials or to develop waste-to-energy / waste-to-fuel solutions.
Designing a stakeholder engagement and communications strategy for circular economy initiatives.
Implementation includes focus group discussions, workshops, public events or media content which bring various stakeholders – government, waste management companies, recycling companies, industry partners, NGOs and community groups on the same platform.
