SEAS Executive Director Kavita Gandhi's commentary on how businesses in Singapore reduce their carbon footprint and help mitigate climate change was published on The Business Times on 2 September 2019.
Highlighted on the national agenda, climate change has implications for the very survival of Singapore. While the government has introduced many measures including a new carbon tax, businesses themselves need to implement innovative new solutions to manage their energy consumption and incorporate sustainable energy strategies supporting the adoption of clean energy. Now more than ever, driving greater awareness of best practices and progressive technologies that foster sustainability in the energy ecosystem will be the way forward. Having industry platforms and open discussions will increase the decentralisation, decarbonisation, and digitalisation of the energy ecosystem.
