Advocating an ABC World
In September 2015, Singapore and 192 other members of the United Nations signed up to deliver the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, by 2030.
Our collective action – governments, businesses, civil societies and individuals working together – is required to translate the SDG ideals into the reality of a better and more sustainable world – an ABC World of Active economies, Beautiful societies and a Clean Earth.
Investing for a Sustainable World
The DNA of Temasek is a commitment towards Ecosperity, twinning prosperity with ecology.
We take a long view of our investments. We succeed if the broader community succeeds. Thus, we seek to safeguard the intergenerational interests of our communities through innovative solutions and sustainable systems, science and technologies.
Proteins from plants, laboratories and aqua-farming are some innovative solutions to meet growing global food demand more sustainably.
Calysta is one investment example which converts methane gas into edible, natural proteins as a sustainable food source for fish, livestock and pets. Another example is our investment in the TPG Rise Fund for impact investing.
From Ideas to Impact
Our fifth Ecosperity conference for turning ideas into impact, explored new business models and ideas around the topics of food, education and healthcare. It was held on 5 June 2018 in conjunction with the United Nations World Environment Day.
We took the opportunity to partner UNLEASH, a global innovation lab for 1,000 young talents from around the world to co-create solutions for the SDGs. The vibrant exchange at Ecosperity and UNLEASH will bring various stakeholders closer to translating the SDGs into reality.
Sustainability at Work
Our staff champion sustainability causes for a Green Office under our GO! project.
This year, we partnered Singtel to raise awareness on electronic waste, and collected 320kg of e-waste for deconstructing and recycling. We also supported EcoBank to collect pre-loved clothing, toys, books, and homeware for charity.
An active, robust economy delivers good jobs and creates opportunities.
It is the foundation of stable, secure and sustainable societies. Productive workers can have a sense of pride and dignity, provide for their loved ones and themselves, and look to the future with confidence.
A beautiful and inclusive society fosters peace and justice, and enables individuals to reach their fullest potential.
Shared values that embrace justice and equality, and expand our common spaces, will strengthen our tolerance, mutual respect, and the ties that bind us together.
A clean, cool Earth is our home, a common space and heritage.
We must act today to preserve our living space for ourselves and our future generations. Fresh air, clean water and a cool world are Earth’s natural gifts, which we must treasure and protect as our legacy.
