A Living Lab of Sustainability
Solving the world’s problems
From transportation and public housing, to energy management and water treatment, Singapore has developed some of the world’s most advanced urban solutions, including collaborating in the development of eco-cities from China to India. An example is home grown company Hyflux, a leading water and environmental solutions provider, which is now building the world’s largest seawater desalination plant in Algeria.
Urban Solutions Business Events: Opportunities for growth
Singapore’s progressive commitment to innovative urban solutions has seen vast business event opportunities. The twin goals of liveability and sustainability call for more thought-leadership platforms and marketplaces that deep-dive into unique and niche areas including clean and renewable energy, food security, place management, social inclusivity and other themes that nurture the next generation.
