Across the world, young people are transforming communities and society in the areas of technology, food security, healthcare, education and more. Their ideas shape the future in tremendous ways. Businesses can play a positive role in nurturing youths into champions of the green movement which holds the key to a more resilient and sustainable world for our future generations to live in.
For this year’s Young Leaders Dialogue session, City Developments Limited (CDL) is pleased to invite several outstanding young Singaporeans to share their ideas at Responsible Business Forum 2018. Hear from award-winning UglyGood, a local startup that promotes the circular economy and zero waste model by transforming discarded fruit peels into purposeful materials. Founders Jeremy Lee and Clewyn Puah decided to make something positive out of the huge amount of organic waste produced by the fruit juicing industry. That dream led them to green technology and scientific research, which they used to turn organic waste into a line of natural cleaning solutions and essential oils that are non-toxic in nature. In 2018, UglyGood became the winner for the Create4Good Challenge.
In addition, Chermain Ang, Hafiz Kasman and Kevin Ling will share their thoughts and experiences through a panel discussion on promoting sustainability in Singapore. All 3 were winners in the past cycles of the CDL-GCNS Young CSR Leaders Award (rebranded as CDL-GCNS Young SDG Leaders Award in 2018). This award is a case competition that looks at how companies incorporate sustainability into their business strategy. Find out what sustainability means to these young leaders and gain insights from their perspectives on how you can engage your next generation of stakeholders! The panel session will be moderated by Ms Esther An, Chief Sustainability Officer, CDL and take place on 11 October 2018 , 1.10 – 1.30pm at the Simpor Junior Ballroom, Level 4 of Marina Bay Sands.
