We design our projects around each mission of the Lab.

Projects with mission


Responsible Business Practices (RBP)
For today’s consumers, it is more important than ever to have transparent information about a company’s business conduct. A company’s competitiveness and the health of the communities around it are closely intertwined. Understanding and applying this concept of “shared value” has the power to stimulate economic growth.

What does it mean for a logistics company? In which areas should logistics companies be responsible in particular?

The report provides trends and recommendations.

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)


Extended Producer Responsibility profiles for 8 countries in Asia Pacific and Africa.

EPR is a policy tool that includes a manufacturers’ responsibility for life-cycle costs of their products and associated packaging. This encourages cleaner, safer materials and production processes, as well as it eliminates waste at each stage of the product’s life cycle.

EPR is successfully used in Europe, but what is the status here in Asia and what role can Logistics companies play?

Then report analyses trends and developments in Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) as a way to avoid waste and promote recycling.

In addition, we created a case study for academic, teaching, publication and research activities of SMU and other institution of higher education.
