Our purpose is to advocate for inclusive and regenerative capitalism which we intend to accomplish by embedding its principles and concepts in all our consulting engagements. Moreover, we intend to create value for our clients by helping them come up with cutting-edge sustainable strategies supported by efficient business processes, sustainable practices, and inclusive, enriching, and values-oriented organization design.

Increase the membership to Southeast Asia Circular Economy Coalition to 200 composed of individuals (scientists, academics, industry practitioners) from the 10 member nations (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). This coalition will encourage the governments comprising the ASEAN to adopt the Circular Economy Model as a national policy to ensure the regeneration and preservation of natural capital while ensuring a robust and sustainable business sector. The coalition will also serve as a forum for exchanging innovative ideas and research findings on effective Circular Economy initiatives. Lastly, it will help the ASEAN Secretariat in drafting its policy on Circular Economy.
Circular Economy is imperative at this time when we have vast islands of trash in our oceans and we are consuming earth’s natural resources at an unsustainable rate. In contrast to the Linear Model (from cradle to grave) we have at present, the Circular Model mimics the natural cycle of the biosphere that is from cradle to cradle. In implementing the Circular Economy Model, waste generation will be at most residual and natural resource extraction will be eliminated.
Approval of the Philippine Circular Economy Act by the Philippine President in December 2023. The Philippine Circular Economy Act will accelerate the attainment of the objectives of the “Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000” (Republic Act 9003) as it can help reduce solid wastes to a residual level. The Philippine Circular Economy Act will also put in place enabling mechanisms in the government bureaucracy and the Philippine society at large to regenerate and preserve the ecosystem for future generations while ensuring adequate incentives for businesses to adopt the circular model either as part of corporate strategy or ESG. The Bellen Management Consulting will assist in the drafting of the Philippine Circular Economy Act and its corresponding Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR).
At least one client will employ a member of the marginalized sector or put in place a social enterprise for them by 2024.
