As carbon emission deadlines loom, manufacturers across the world are struggling to accelerate their company’s sustainability journey. 
In Singapore, a country with limited potential to deploy renewable energy, companies are facing key challenges to define an implementation strategy towards net zero operations. Moreover, countries in APAC, just like in the EU, have carbon emission reduction targets passed into law and industries will require major structural changes to secure their license to operate, competitiveness and market share.
The Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE) of Singapore is committed to providing a clean and sustainable environment. To support this ambition, MSE has been organising an annual national initiative called ‘Go Green SG’ (previously known as Climate Action Week) that brings together sustainability-related events to galvanise Singaporeans to take collective climate action.
In the margins of ‘Go Green SG’ initiative 2023, EuroCham together with APB Singapore are organising a dialogue and site visit. 
During the dialogue you will learn:
How Singapore looks to develop and deploy low-carbon solutions for manufacturing
How APB Singapore is working towards meeting their net zero goals
During the site visit, you will be inspired by APB Singapore’s environmental strategy and their focus on “systemic efficiency” that integrates energy-efficient buildings and infrastructure, maximising circular economy and conservation of water.
The session will end at their Tiger Tavern with some beer and networking opportunities.

On 27th July, EuroCham, in partnership with Asia Pacific Breweries (APB) Singapore, organised a panel discussion on “How to Transform Manufacturing to Meet Net Zero” followed by a sustainability-themed tour of the brewery.

We would like to thank our esteemed speakers, Mr Tuang Liang Lim (The Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment, Singapore), Mr Clement Teo (Singapore Manufacturing Federation) and Ms Patricia Lee (Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore (Part of The HEINEKEN Company)) for all the insights and knowledge shared.

Our moderator and EuroCham’s Sustainability Committee Co-Chair, Mr Stephan Degenhart (Drees & Sommer Asia and Middle East), skillfully weaved a very vibrant discussion on policies and regulations encouraging sustainability in manufacturing processes, struggles and hurdles the manufacturing companies face and technologies and processes they can adapt to help them prioritize sustainability and achieve robust economic growth. Learning from global best practices and keeping flexible while at the same time remaining transparent were some of the key takeaways for a successful transition to net zero carbon emissions. Needless to say, a very lively discussion arose during the Q&A.

We would like to thank all who joined us and made this event a successful one!
