Enable business and industry growth

Work with Enterprise Singapore to develop initiatives, programmes and more to help startups and enterprises grow their capabilities, innovate and expand overseas.

Develop sustainability initiatives and programmes

The Enterprise Sustainability Programme (ESP) helps Singapore companies integrate sustainability into their businesses in order to remain competitive amid an increasing focus on sustainability worldwide.

We are keen to work with industry partners on sustainability initiatives for local SMEs.

Partners we are looking for:

  • Partners for Energy-Related Projects
    Develop initiatives to help companies across different sectors improve energy efficiency.
    • Partners should have experience working with SMEs and preferably be accredited as an Energy Services Company or able to deploy certified Energy Efficiency Opportunities Assessors for the programme.
  • Partners for Sustainability Standards Projects
    Drive the adoption of sustainability standards that will build capabilities and enhance market access.
    • Partners should possess industry experience in sustainability and/or a strong track record in working with local SMEs, and ensure that impartiality is strictly upheld.
    • Partners should also be able to demonstrate the value of their initiatives in addressing industry gaps or opportunities.
  • Partners for ESP Sustainability Courses
    Develop and run courses to help companies build knowledge on sustainability. These include foundational courses and topical courses on areas such as decarbonisation, sustainable finance and more.
    • Partners should possess relevant expertise in sustainability, track records in running training courses for business leaders, and have a wide network and reach of local enterprises.
    • Partners should also be able to demonstrate how their courses can help participants gain crucial knowledge in identified sustainability areas, including knowledge that can be applied to their businesses.

    Reach out to us if you are interested in conducting courses on other sustainability-related topics such as the circular economy.
