We are glad to share that our Managing Director, Er Tan Seng Chuan, will be speaking at a webinar organised by NUS’s Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering on “Climate Change – An Opportunity for Engineer” on 9 July 2021, 3–4 pm.
In the talk, Er Tan will share his perspective as an engineer in light of Singapore’s and global efforts to address the issue of climate change through transitioning to a low-carbon economy.
The following is the abstract of the webinar:
Over the years, Singapore has been demonstrating its commitment to support international climate action and low-carbon future. In its enhanced 2030 Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and Low-Emissions Development Strategy (LEDS), Singapore government outlines its ambition to facilitate a well-managed transition to a low-carbon economy, and subsequently contribute to a more sustainable future. Supporting initiatives such as the Singapore Green Plan 2030, Climate Impact X (CIX) and Emerging Stronger Taskforce have been launched to create a conducive environment for green growth.
However, what will it take to make it happen?
In this presentation, Er. Tan will discuss the trends in industry sectors that are shifting with the increasing prevalence of low-carbon initiatives. Global sustainability policy, drivers, and implication of rising climate initiatives across various area, including Energy, water, waste, environment, agriculture and Food, infrastructure, and Land Use. He will also discuss the challenges and opportunities for engineers as we transition to a low-carbon economy.
