As Southeast Asia has become a new hub for global supply chains, the environmental cost has continued to mount as higher volumes of hazardous waste and plastics meet underdeveloped waste systems. Environmental Solutions Group Holdings Ltd. (ESGL) is helping to transition to a circular, carbon-neutral economic model by converting hazardous waste into circular products that help MNCs like Shell and Micron meet ESG mandates.
Watch this full discussion with the top management of ESGL and the President of Genesis Unicorn Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:GENQ), the SPAC that has announced a business combination agreement with the company. Topics explored:
- What is the scale of hazardous and plastic waste issues in ASEAN?
- How is the regulatory environment changing, and what is the scale of investment to meet waste treatment and carbon-zero goals?
- Who are ESGL’s current customers, and how are they reducing their environmental impact?
- What is the company’s business model, and how does the management plan to expand in their current home base of Singapore and across Southeast Asia?
- Why is this the right time for ESGL to go public, and why did Genesis Unicorn choose to partner with them?
