Sustainability is a global imperative as we face a climate and environmental emergency. It is a key driver of the EU Commission agenda, and also an important focus for the Singapore Government.

EuroCham has embraced the “European Excellence in Sustainability” programme for the year 2022-2023 and we have designed a line-up of activities to position European companies as leaders in sustainability and also share how European and Singapore companies can work together in the area. EuroCham is working with Accenture as our knowledge partner to develop the framework of this sustainability programme.

The programme focused on five areas which will be covered by 4 activity pillars.

If you consider your company’s sustainable efforts to be impactful from a social and environmental perspective, if you are able to describe how and provide examples, we welcome you to share your company’s sustainability practices and policies, to collaborate with EuroCham on our Whitebook and to enter the Sustainability Awards 2022.
