Alliance launched to help S’pore firms go green
SINGAPORE : The Singapore Business Federation (SBF) has launched an alliance to help local companies become more eco-friendly.
The group will also help them tap into Singapore’s Clean Technology (Cleantech) network.
Also, a handbook titled “Riding the Megatrend of Sustainability” was launched in collaboration with the National University of Singapore (NUS).
Offering insights on the motivations and experiences of sustainable business, the handbook will spur businesses to follow in the footsteps of the green pioneers.
Meanwhile, the Singapore Sustainability Awards ceremony saw nine private and public sector organisations being honoured for their sustainable business practices.
The awards comprise the Sustainable Business Awards (SBA) and the Green IT Awards (GIT).
The SBA is divided into two categories – for large enterprises and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
DHL, Sembcorp Industries and JTC Corporation emerge as winning companies in the Enterprise Sustainable Business category, while Greenpac, Rigel Technology, and Siloso Beach Resort won in the SME Sustainable Business segment.
The Green IT awards, which aim to provide recognition to holistic green IT solutions, was won by the The National Library Board, Tak System Integration and eBUS Media Networks.
Winners are judged on criteria like innovative initiatives, corporate social responsibility and sustainable growth by an independent panel of experts drawn from industry verticals and technology partners.
This is the second year the SBF has organised the awards.
