Asia Business Summit 2023: “Those who can collaborate with the environment will flourish”

At the Asia Future Summit 2023 from 4 to 5 October 2023, Chavalit Frederick Tsao, Chairman of IMC Pan Asia Alliance Group, joined Andreas Sohmen-Pao, Chairman of BW Group, on a panel discussion moderated by Lee Su Shyan, Associate Editor, The Straits Times, to discuss what businesses should do to combat climate change. 

Highlighting the importance for individuals and businesses to “care” as a catalyst for action, Chavalit said: “If a heart is not ‘green’, there will be greenwashing. When we truly care, that is when positive change becomes possible. Humanity is defined by its creativity, and I am confident that we can solve the climate challenge before us if we tap on a new, unifying motivation and create a community of a shared destiny.”

Asia Future Summit 2023 is organised by SPH Media. Held at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore, the by-invitation conference featured approximately 20 local and international speakers, and around 300 delegates, with representatives spanning the public, private and people sectors. Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong was both a speaker and Guest-of-Honour for the event.

The conference took place amid the birth centenary of Singapore’s founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew and addressed topics such as geopolitics, business, and economy.
