“We believe a “carrot and stick” approach can bring our society to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. While laws and regulations can be introduced to mandate businesses to move towards zero waste, businesses should also be incentivised to go above and beyond in their efforts to protect the environment.
Greening Asean: Initiatives & Leadership (GAIL) is a sustainability initiative spearheaded by our RHT Rajan Menon Foundation. GAIL hopes to bring together various stakeholders across all industries to raise awareness and inspire sustainability and corporate social responsibility initiatives for a green Singapore.
We plan to launch the inaugural GAIL Awards soon to recognise businesses that are leading the way in green growth and inspire others to make the right move towards a zero-waste Singapore.” – Mr Tan Chong Huat
