Henry Kwek on moving towards a low-carbon society

Singapore can be a leader in climate justice and help to shape the region in this field, therefore strengthening its global standing for another generation, said MP Henry Kwek in Parliament on Wednesday (Jan 12). He laid out a multi-pronged strategy, which included actively contributing to the adoption of green finance and accounting frameworks for Asia, and getting state investment fund Temasek to spur key local companies to embrace and pilot those new standards. Mr Kwek also called for the creation of a SkillsFuture roadmap to position as many Singaporeans as possible for “green-collar” jobs.
