Creating Jobs and Growth Through Sustainability

Creating Jobs and Growth Through Sustainability | CNA Green Plan Challenge Part 5

Gan Kim Yong
A Fourth Industrial Revolution is underway, with the aim of decarbonising industries and creating greener and more resilient supply chains. As part of this movement, Singapore is nurturing a Green Economy, to create and pivot businesses that advance sustainability. With plans to transform Singapore into a hub for carbon services and green finance, the coverage will leverage on Sustainability as a new engine for jobs and growth. But what can Singaporeans do to help fuel the green economy? As the saying goes, it takes two to tango.

While businesses are making the effort to decarbonise, they can’t get far without buy-in from consumers. We play matchmaker by hooking residents up with companies seeking to ride the green wave. We also get creative juices flowing with a gruelling hackathon. Participants devise innovative ways to give products and services a green makeover.
