Making Sense of Cents

about the event


Carbon tax will be introduced in Singapore in 2019 as part of our efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions.

In this shift towards a low-carbon economy, businesses will feel the pinch. How can businesses cope with this change, while coexisting synergistically within our ecosystem?

For this lunchtime talk, we have invited a panel of industry leaders to discuss and give insights on how carbon tax will impact our economic climate, as well as how we should make sense of the cents in this initiative.

The session will end with a visit to the world’s largest underground district cooling network that leverages economies of scale and optimises asset efficiency – saving energy by more than 40%! Come join us for an exclusive tour of Singapore District Cooling located in the heart of Marina Bay Sands.
