Dr Steve Howard, Chief Sustainability Officer, Temasek.
“There are many complex challenges in today’s global situation, but the climate crisis remains as important as ever. In fact, climate change has a multiplier effect on issues like energy and food insecurity. Now more than ever, we must act with urgency to scale innovative solutions that can help us move towards a net zero future. We need immediate, collaborative action among countries, companies and communities. By bringing together diverse actors, we hope that Ecosperity Week can contribute to accelerating action for a more resilient future.”

Innovating for a resilient future
Following the successful launch of the three-part documentary series, “Climate Trailblazers: Reimagining Our Future” at last year’s Ecosperity Week, a sequel titled, “Climate Trailblazers: Towards Net Zero” will be launched at Ecosperity Week this year. The docuseries spotlights the renewable energy transition taking place in Asia, the challenges and decarbonisation pathways for hard-to-abate sectors such as aviation and maritime, and how carbon markets and private capital can catalyse breakthroughs and innovations in new solutions for the climate crisis.
This year’s Ecosperity Week will be a hybrid event at Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands. The event is made possible with support from headline sponsors – PwC, RGE, SP Group, UBS; and supporting sponsors – PSA, SembCorp, and Standard Chartered, as well as SMBC, a supporting sponsor of SSIFC.
