Countries, global corporations and consumers are increasingly embracing sustainability and placing emphasis on sustainable practices. Against this backdrop, Singapore companies too recognise the need to integrate sustainability into their businesses in order to remain competitive in the local and global economy.
The Enterprise Sustainability Programme (ESP) supports Singapore companies, especially our SMEs, to build capabilities and capture new opportunities. We are here to support your sustainability journey, no matter which stage you are at.
We will work with industry partners to develop sustainability initiatives and programmes, and foster a vibrant and conducive sustainability ecosystem.

The Sustainability Courses series aims to help local enterprises build awareness and knowledge of sustainability, covering sustainability trends, risks and opportunities, basic concepts and topics.
