Perspectives from Thought Leaders in APAC
We will be returning to Singapore on November 1st, in partnership with one of the most exclusive clubs in Singapore – Mandala Club – for another insightful sharing with networking dinner.
We often talk about #Sustainability on a consumer level, however, it’s important for us to also understand the latest efforts industry leaders have invested and continue to invest for a more sustainable tomorrow. Renewable energy and real estate development (green buildings) are two key aspects with impact to our tomorrow profoundly. What does net-zero and decarbonization really mean? How do we understand this on a larger scale? More importantly, as leaders in their field, how did General Electric, Google and Hung Kuo Group build their individual partnerships to change the ecosystem to be greener, and to move their industries for the better?
Let’s gather with like-minded global talents at the Mandala Club in Singapore, to hear from these pioneers in leading these changes in sustainability: how did they identify their parts to lead and execute on their strategy, and how we can now get involved to participate in the changes too.
Join to hear from three expert panelists, Mr. Kazunari Fukui from General Electric serving as its Asia Decarbonization Leader based in Singapore, and Ms. Yvonne Lin, CEO of Hung Kuo Group which built Taiwan’s inaugural LEED certified building and the iconic Taipei 101 – a certified American LEED Accredited Professional herself – and Abhishek Modi of Google, leading Climate, Crisis Response and Sustainability partnerships at Google along with Health, Education and Civics.
These thought leaders will gather to discuss the roles their respective industries play in green energy and green buildings, while CAREhER CEO & Co-Founder, Tiffany Chou will moderate the session.
