Singapore’s top trade associations links arms to adopt industry-wide green initiatives

Initiatives such as waste and GHG emission reduction are just some of their goals.

The Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCCI), the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), and SGTech through a Memorandum of Understanding launched a new sustainability alliance during the Asia Clean Energy Summit (2022) as part of the Singapore Energy Week (SIEW) at Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands.

The alliance is geared towards the adoption of industry-wide enabling initiatives on reducing waste and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through adopting clean energy matrices, technologies, and practices, as well as policy and finance, to facilitate businesses particularly small and medium businesses (SMEs) in achieving measurable transformations towards meeting Singapore Green Plan targets.

The alliance will be focused on creating programmes that (1) guide and support Singapore businesses in particular SMEs in adopting sustainable technologies and practices that reduce wastes and GHG emissions; (2) grow local demand and supply for sustainability professionals familiar with technology-enabled sustainable solutions; (3) drive research and thought leadership in waste and emissions reduction by producing studies and insights to solve problems together with the Singapore government; and (4) collaborate with the Singapore government policymakers in developing policy and regulations that further the Singapore Green Plan and position Singapore as a regional leader in sustainability.

The Memorandum of Understanding is signed by SGTech Executive Director Yean Cheong, SEAS Executive Director Kavita Gandhi, and SCCCI Youth Business and Sustainability Committee Chairman Mark Lee.
