Close to 100 guests from government, private sector, and NGOs turned up for the event, which turned out to be a lively meeting of minds, lots of food, drink and networking.

The preview event featured short speeches and presentations from John Pearson, head of Southeast Asia Climate Change Network at the British High Commission Singapore; Howard Shaw, executive director of the Singapore Environment Council; and Camilla Hall, special advisor to the IUCN.

Some highlights of the site include up-to-date news in the environmental business space in Asia, some of which will be under the “Features” section. Writers will also write opinion pieces under the “Insight” section, or blog about issues of a lighter nature. The announcements and events section is really a free service for the community to get publicity for events, so do make use of it!
