Ms Adrienna Zsakay has spent more than half her working life in Asia. Ms Zsakay’s career has been quite diverse, including the international trade in food, and seven years specialising in Asian food regulations. In 2010, Ms Zsakay became interested in infrastructure and operational design for recyclable resource recovery collection systems specifically for the Asian region. This hobby resulted in Ms Zsakay founding Circular Economy Asia (CEA) in 2016, a registered NGO in Malaysia where she is based. In early 2020 Ms Zsakay launched Circular Skills, the world’s first online education platform dedicated to skills training for the circular economy. Courses include Circular Economy Foundation Course, The Nine Steps Towards a Circular Business, and the Waste-as-a-Resource workshop. CEA’s projects include Wasteas-a-Resource and the Asian Plastics & Packaging Agreement. CEA also provides consultancy services. Ms Zsakay has a BA (Asian Studies & Politics) from the University of Western Australia and has studied International and Asian food law from Michigan State University.
