About This Event

This event is part of Made in Singapore 2022, a week-long free virtual event series celebrating inspiring leaders and iconic local businesses making a positive difference to the nation and beyond. Check out the full lineup at madeinsingaporega.com.

As the "green" and "tech" in its name suggests, GreenTech utilises science and technology to protect our natural resources, improve sustainability practices and mitigate the negative environmental impact that results from human activity.

Singapore plays an important role in driving sustainable, green technology in Southeast Asia. Just last year, The Singapore Green Plan 2030 was unveiled. This is a national sustainability movement intended to help pave the country's way towards a more sustainable future and transition to a low carbon economy over the next decade. It’s clear that GreenTech is the future.

At our upcoming webinar, hear from our expert panel, who will be discussing the importance of GreenTech to improve and advance environmental sustainability in Singapore. You can learn more about the challenges that need to be addressed and gain insights into the future of the thriving GreenTech industry. Expect to leave with a better understanding of Singapore’s commitment to help build a sustainable future.
