Alongside Singapore’s Nature-Based Solutions projects (e.g. Tengah Forest Town), to adapt and build resilience to climate change, the Government aims to transition to net zero emissions by 2050.
As a responsible business management consultant, you have been invited to join a Government Task Force to advise how different businesses should adapt to this plan while ensuring a commitment to circular economy principles and Singapore’s sustainable development commitments.
For the first meeting, you have been tasked with selecting one business sector and preparing a report that outlines:
i) The likely positive and negative impact on this sector of this transition plan,
ii) Any risks, challenges and opportunities to this sector of this transition, regarding the business, employees, Government and regulators, citizens,
iii) How the business might benefit from the application of circular economy
principles and other responsible business decision-making practices to other parts of their operations, including the supply chain,
iv) Identify three ways in which the Government could support or incentivise
businesses to participate in this transition fully.
NB: Students can use their country of origin or choice, e.g., the ASEAN bloc with
similar programmes to build resilience to climate change and transition to net-zero emissions by 2050.
Below are the sectors you may choose from:
1. Manufacturing and Construction Sector
2. Built Environment and the Housing Stock
3. Transport Sector
4. Retail Sector
5. Community Development Council
