Sindicatum wins the Singapore Apex Corporate Sustainability Award for Sustainable Business (SME Category)

Singapore:

Pursuing sustainable practices is a “matter of survival, and of stewardship”, and business should be leading the way, said Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat last night.

Mr Heng told the Singapore Apex Corporate Sustainability Awards at the Parkroyal on Pickering that even as “climate change poses a real threat for small island states like Singapore”, sustainability is also a matter of survival for businesses. “Studies show that sound sustainability standards lower a company’s cost of capital, and result in better operational performance. Investor demands and customer expectations are increasingly favouring sustainable businesses,” Mr Heng said.

He added: “Sustainability is also about what we leave behind after our time. We have a duty of stewardship to future generations… Businesses, too, have a duty of stewardship – to their shareholders, their employees, their customers and their community.”
