The British High Commission hosted a lecture by British national Dr. Martin Blake, Executive Director of The GreenAsia Group. He gave a lecture on the business case for energy conservation introducing the best practices of organisations.
The organisations included the Royal Mail Group (UK), United World College of Southeast Asia and National Oil Company.
The lecture said that it makes sound business sense for companies to invest in energy-saving measures. Besides reducing their energy consumption, and therefore reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, companies can save a large amount of money on their energy bills. For example, Royal Mail Group could save £30 million per annum with the Energy and Carbon Reduction Programme. Dr. Blake assured that the payback period on such investments is normally commercially-viable.
The event was attended by the Singaporean business community, government officials and researchers.
Dr. Blake, a British national, was recently named as one of the top 100 Global Sustainability leaders by Sustain Ability Showcase Asia and ABC Carbon.
