Ten entrepreneurs and business professionals were recognised for their efforts in going green in their businesses by The Peak. Their names made it to the luxury lifestyle magazine's annual Power List, unveiled on Monday (Nov 5) during a gala dinner at Sheraton Towers Singapore.
Into its fifth year, The Peak Power List recognises movers and shakers in a specific area.
Last year, it highlighted Singapore’s leading innovators and disruptors such as Dinesh Bhatia of TradeHero and SportsHero, Lai Chang Wen of Ninja Van and Rosemary Tan of Veredus Laboratories.
The 2018 list pays homage to individuals and enterprises leading green efforts across different industries. These leaders have established successful businesses centred on supporting and furthering long-term ecological balance in sectors that include, but not limited to, clean energy; low-carbon/non-polluting products; resource conservation; and green design/architecture.
Included on The Peak Power List 2018 are Esther An, City Development Limited’s Chief Sustainability Officer who has been driving conservation education and eco-friendly practices in the group’s properties; Bjorn Low, whose social enterprise Edible Garden City promotes urban farming; and Apollo Aquaculture Group’s Eric Ng, who uses vertical seafood farming methods to maximise production and efficiency.
The nomination and selection process was done by the magazine's editorial team in consultation with a panel of industry leaders, which included veteran Venture Capitalist Koh Soo Boon, managing partner of iGlobe Partners; Simon Tay, Chairman of Singapore Institute of International Affairs, Frank Phuan, Chief Executive of Sunseap Group; and Jessica Cheam, Founder of digital media platform Eco-Business.
