Meixi Gan has been hired as group sustainability manager by Singapore conglomerate Keppel Corporation. The news follows the company’s recent hire of its first chief sustainability officer in February this year. 

Gan was previously deputy director of sustainability at think tank Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA), where she led and developed the institute’s policy programme on sustainability. This included research and advisory services as well as engaging corporations, financial institutions, policymakers and non-government organisations.

Her focus areas included carbon markets, green finance, transboundary air pollution, deforestation and forest commodity sectors in Southeast Asia.

Keppel Corp, whose interests include asset management, offshore and marine, renewables and infrastructure, aims to half its direct and indirect Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030, and achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

The company is also planning to reduce its exposure to fossil fuel-related businesses. In January last year, Keppel Corp announced that it would exit the offshore rig-building business. The group is also part of a consortium planning to develop carbon capture technology to reduce its climate impact.
