Carbon Management Workshop
19 November 2021
19 November 2021, Friday – For most businesses, cost reduction has always been the main priority, but in recent times, sustainability has started to become a rising concern. With the Singapore Green Plan 2030, more businesses are moving towards reducing operating costs and gaining a competitive advantage by going green!
Be it if you are operating a small business or working for a large corporation, finding measures that reduce costs and increase sustainability should be a big part of your business plan! As such, ASPRI is grateful to have collaborated with Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) in organising a 1-day Carbon Management Workshop.
The workshop started with an opening address given by Ethan Chia, Programme Manager of ASPRI, who oversees Sustainability and Digitalisation for the Association. He briefly shared on the vision of ASPRI and how the Association is trying its very best to support member companies on their sustainability journey.
Dr Ryal Wun, Managing Director of CPLC Singapore, took over to introduce CPLC and shared a video on what greenhouse effects and climate change is all about. He further shared on what are emissions and the 4 pillars of sustainability which are Business Human Rights, Labour, Anti-Corruption and Environment. Other topics on carbon footprint, carbon pricing, carbon credits and many more were also shared.
After which, Gabriel Tan, Assistant Manager (Upskilling & Recognition) of CPLC Singapore shared in details the benefits of using the Carbon & Emissions Recording Toll (CERT) tool. With the CERT tool, members will be able to calculate their carbon footprint as well as to measure the progress on emission reduction across a period of time.
After lunch, CPLC Singapore invited 3 guest speakers who are sustainable solution providers to share on sustainability solutions which members can adopt. The 1st speaker was Mr Leela Krishna Sriramula, Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer of SpaceAge Labs. Mr Leela shared on how IOT and AI can help improve resources efficiency and regulatory compliance.
The 2nd speaker was Mr Leonard Chen, Sales and Marketing Manager of Uniweld Products (USA), shared on the different types of products and services that are available such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Process Automation, Productivity Enhancement Technology, Induction Heating System, Additive Manufacturing, Air Quality Management System and more!
The 3rd and last guest speaker, Mr Kang Jen Wee, Founder and CEO of T.RECs.ai then further shared on the difference between ESG and Greenwashing. He also briefly talked about the myths about zero carbon and how we can be powered by 100% renewal energy and more.
Following which, all participants were broken up into different breakout rooms where an interactive discussion was conducted to gather feedback and comments from the participants of different companies. It was great to see how everyone participated and gave their feedback on how their company can reduce emissions and to share the type of innovations that their company requires to help reduce emissions.
The workshop ended with a Q&A session followed by a summary of the whole workshop. ASPRI would like to thank CPLC Singapore and all the speakers for making this workshop possible! Last but not least, we would also like to thank our very supporter and co-sponsor of this workshop, Employment and Employability Institute (e2i). It was an insightful sharing and I believe our members have a better idea of how they can better manage, track and improve their carbon emissions.
