Sustainability

SWR2018-page

Our Sustainability programme focuses on environmental and resource issues faced by Singapore and ASEAN. The SIIA conducts research and encourage dialogue on a range of environmental issues, including the haze, climate change, energy, and the resource sector.

The case for sustainability is now clearer than ever. At the global level, the challenges of climate change are more and more evident. Within the region, the recurring transboundary haze is a stark concern for ASEAN, affecting the very air we breathe.

The SIIA engages industry players and thought leaders to share best practices and galvanise action towards sustainable practices. We work closely with governments, corporations, NGOs, financial institutions and others.

For example, the recurring haze in Southeast Asia demonstrates the need for companies and smallholder farmers to recognise that fires are not only illegal, but also against their interest. Consumers are also beginning to push for sustainable criteria in their purchasing, while banks, regulators and policymakers are increasingly taking the lead in ensuring that the resource industry and agriculture is conducted in a safe and sustainable manner. This underscores the need for an integrated approach that fosters collaboration across different stakeholder groups.

The SIIA releases periodic reports and policy briefs on sustainability issues, and also organises conferences, roundtables, working groups and other events.

Singapore Dialogue on Sustainable World Resources

The SIIA organises the annual Singapore Dialogue on Sustainable World Resources (SDSWR), bringing together policymakers, industry delegates, NGO representatives, academics and members of the media to discuss the latest opportunities and challenges in the pursuit of sustainable and equitable growth in Asia’s resource sector. Since the first Dialogue in 2014, the Dialogue has served as a key multi-stakeholder platform for featuring best practices, new commitments and noteworthy cross-sector collaborations..
