The COVID-19 pandemic has been a wake-up call for governments, policy-makers and investors. No longer can climate change and other ESG issues be delayed or ignored. In Singapore, the Singapore Green Plan was launched on 10 February 2021 and the significance which Singapore is placing on this plan is evident by the fact that the Green Plan is spearheaded by five major ministries: Ministry of Education, Ministry of National Development, Ministry of Trade and Industry, Ministry of Transport and Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment.
The Green Plan is an ambitious movement with concrete targets set to advance Singapore's national agenda on sustainable development for the next 10 years. The Green Plan consists of 5 key pillars – "City in Nature", "Sustainable Living", "Energy Reset", "Green Economy" and "Resilient Future".
What do these key pillars mean? How will a green economy affect businesses in Singapore? Join us for this webinar with Lee Weilin, Banking & Finance Partner and Head of the Sustainability Practice at Rajah & Tann, who will share some insights into the Singapore Green Plan and what the key focus areas are for Singapore.
The session will also cover what can be done on the part of corporates to respond to Singapore's targets to achieve the long-term net-zero emissions aspiration and how the Green Plan may bring about opportunities to businesses in the ASEAN region.
