Dear Members and Friends

Happy New Year! Xin Nian Kuai Le!

Your Chamber is all about sustaining businesses and Singapore. What has been achieved in the last 6 decades here is nothing short of remarkable and deserves to be sustained. The values and behaviours demonstrating those values must be sustained for future generations and for the wellbeing of this country: good, clean, people-centric governance, the rule of law applied without fear or favour to all, free and fair trade, respect for multi-culturalism and the international rules based order. To these we should add a positive work attitude by all employees in part enabled by a positive workplace culture in every business co-created and sustained by everyone in each business from the Board downwards. The latter two are a work in progress for our economy as they are for all economies. If more businesses here achieved them, it would be transformational for them and go a long way to sustaining Singapore.

Because true sustainability is the core of SICC, the Chamber is a supporting partner of the 2nd annual Sustainability Week Asia organized by Economist Impact part of The Economist Group. This will take place in-person in Singapore and online from 7th to 9th February 2023.

Sustainability is now mainstream because it is all about survival. Sustainability is all about creating new business opportunities and a better future. It is critical that Boards, corporate teams and stakeholders are all focused on practical action.

Sustainability Week Asia aims to help you cut through the greenwashing noise surrounding sustainability, giving you an independent guide to help you chart ways to achieving your business goals. The conference will provide you with macro-level analysis and case studies connected with practical examples to help your business survive by becoming sustainable, faster.

Participate and let me and Andrew Chew, who chairs our Sustainability Interest Group, have your thoughts around the actions you and your business plan to take.


Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
