  • Future of Farming: Sustainable Agriculture

    The agriculture sector faces large challenges, from the environment to manpower to consumption and to pandemics. In the long term, climate changes, food market conditions, reforms in agricultural policies and export caps will continue to pose new challenges. How can we develop sustainable agriculture practices to feed our people under these conditions?

  • Our Sustainable Future With Advanced Materials

    High-performance advanced materials are at the core of the technological innovations needed to reach a sustainable, climate-neutral economy and society. Such materials are a part of the solution to our global challenges, offering better performance in their use, at a lower cost, resource and energy requirements, and improved sustainability at the end-of-life of the products. The development of these new materials could transform our world over the next few decades. We will require Advanced Material innovations across industries and all sectors of the economy to sustain our current and future consumption levels.

  • Sustainable Development in APAC - Innovating for Energy Efficiency

    Energy services are critical contributors to economic activities, social development, and quality of life. They facilitate the operation of factories, businesses, and most importantly - fuel the economy. 
     
    Countries in the APAC region have demonstrated global leadership and a strong commitment to delivering energy access, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. As the United Nations' 7 Sustainable Development Goals aims to double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030, it is essential to explore innovative means to consume energy responsibly. How can businesses and corporates continue to ensure energy efficiency and eventually meet the country's zero net emissions targets by 2050?
     
    In this event, we speak to experts operating in the APAC region to understand how urban developments can be energy efficient. We will also be looking into how various stakeholders can continue innovating to achieve the SDG 7 objectives.

  • Traceability and Transparency: Building Sustainable Supply Chains

    More frequent global shocks, increasing consumer demands for transparency and sustainability, and looming regulations are forcing businesses to better understand their entire supply chain (not just what’s easily visible). Yet, a Bain study found that 60% of companies have zero visibility into inputs beyond Tier 1 of their supply chains.
     
    Traceability will be a key differentiator: those who succeed will build competitive weapons, those who do not face risks and customer flight. Technology can enable this transparency with automated data sharing and visualisations across multiple parties, but it is not the only barrier to success. An equally daunting but perhaps more complicated challenge is designing the right governance, operating and partnership model, and data rights. 
     
    With 80% of the top 20 bilateral trade routes going through APAC by 2030, the region has a critical role to play. Early movers can reap significant advantages by defining the region’s industry standards and capitalising on white space. Join us as we explore how businesses can develop and leverage traceability to build a great supply chain – that is efficient, reliable, resilient, and sustainable.

  • Fuel for Thought: Hydrogen and Low-Energy Technologies for a Sustainable Energy Future

    As part of Singapore’s long-term low-emission development strategy, Singapore has pledged to reduce its peak greenhouse gas emissions in 2030 by the year 2050. With 95% of Singapore’s electricity currently generated from natural gas and Singapore’s limited renewable energy sources, the importance of developing low-carbon energy technologies including hydrogen is key to ensure a clean, reliable, and affordable energy supply.

  • How FoodTech Ensures Our Food Security Beyond Covid-19

    Here in Singapore, we love our food, and we cannot lie. With many dishes and flavours from all corners of the world, it’s no wonder eating is the (unofficial) Singapore’s favourite pastime. As we continue to enjoy the latest food trends and culinary recipes, it’s essential that we not ignore the growing concern over our food supply.

  • Nature-based Solutions as a Force Towards A Carbon Neutral Future

    In the race to achieve the ever-increasing ambitions towards net-zero emissions, the voluntary carbon market is gaining momentum with keen buyers seeking to offset the climate footprint of their fossil fuels. Nature-based Solutions (NbS) - as actions that harness the power of nature to tackle social and environmental challenges - is a core foundation to achieving carbon neutrality for its way to build resilience to the consequences of warmer temperatures whilst helping to limit further rises by acting as carbon sinks.

  • Will AI Disrupt Flavour and Ingredient Innovation?

    We have entered a new era where Artificial Intelligence (AI) enhances human decisions. Every industry is going through a significant transformation - the food industry is no different. Food innovation, mainly in flavour and ingredient innovation, which previously required significant manual research, can be accelerated much more efficiently with the help and proper use of Artificial Intelligence.

  • Science and Technology: The Cornerstone of Singapore’s Green Future

    The Singapore Green Plan 2030 seeks to tackle climate change by ensuring Singapore achieve its long-term net-zero emissions goals so as to strengthen Singapore’s commitments under the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. In order to achieve these goals, promoting innovation under the RIE2025 plan will be vital to ensure developments in science and sustainable technologies, and will be a key enabler in establishing Singapore as a leading hub for sustainability.  
     
    Join key players and thought leaders as they discuss the role of research and development in strengthening areas in Singapore such as sustainable packaging, decarbonisation, waste upcycling, water treatment and urban farming.

  • Understanding Water Technology Innovations for Smart Cities

    According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)’s study, 47 per cent of the world's population will be living in areas of high water stress by 2030. The problem of water scarcity affects urban areas more severely, with 14 of the world's 20 megacities experiencing water insufficiency or conditions of drought.
     
    Given the advancement and developments of technology, how can we mitigate these negative trends by harnessing deep tech? What are the practical implementations of innovative solutions from the perspective of the city's management as well as end-users? And does sustainability always mean higher cost?
     
    We bring together cross-border and cross-sectoral collaboration projects between Singaporean and Polish water-tech companies that are harnessing the newest technologies to reach sustainability goals. In this panel discussion, we will highlight game-changing solutions in the fields of wastewater treatment, waste-to-energy plants, and utility management.
