Temasek welcomes the ‘Better Business, Better World’ Report by the Business and Sustainable Development Commission
16 January 2017
Temasek is an active long term investor, a forward looking institution and an intergenerational steward.
Good governance and sustainability underpin all that we do as an investor, institution and steward.
Sustainable long term returns depends on stable, well-functioning and well-governed social, environmental and economic systems.
This is why, aside from our role in investments, we also have six non-profit foundations to focus on building a better world through education and innovation, caring and sharing, building bridges and promoting an Active, Beautiful & Clean world.
We encourage the robust exchange of information, best practices and ideas between key stakeholders from the public and private sectors as critical enablers of sustainable growth.
Our annual Ecosperity conference is one such commitment to foster the twinning of growth and development alongside an abiding respect and commitment for a clean and sustainable environment, for a better world.
Ecosperity 2017, themed ‘Tomorrow Starts Today!’, will be held in Singapore on 5 June 2017.
We welcome the ‘Better Business, Better World’ Report as an important multinational contribution to advancing the dialogue on how businesses can embrace sustainable development to create value beyond their respective organisations.
