As an institution, we have a stake in the well-being of our wider community. We recognise that environmental, social and governance factors can impact our stakeholders, as well as the long term sustainability of companies and businesses.

We believe in seeding social capital to promote a more inclusive and resilient world, so every generation prospers. Since 2003, we have been setting aside a portion of our net positive returns above our risk-adjusted cost of capital for community gifts.

These are approved by the Temasek Board before being gifted, mainly to Temasek Trust (TT), which then disburses the gifts via grants and endowments to our non-profit ecosystem including Temasek Foundation (TF), Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory, Stewardship Asia Centre, and Mandai Nature. To date, Temasek's gifts to TT have enabled programmes which have impacted about 2.5 million lives across Singapore and beyond.
