SIWW TW.5: Sustainability Leadership in Water: Experiences from Industry and Utility
Date: 23 June 2021 (Wednesday)
Time: 4.00pm-5.30pm SGT (GMT+8)
Leadership today calls for businesses to focus not just on delivery of outcomes that benefit the organisation, but increasingly also on addressing impacts of business activities on the wider society and the environment.
CWR’s Debra Tan will be joining a panel in this thematic webinar to discuss whether the industry is responding to make water security an important concern
Other Panelists include, Professor Asit Biswas (Honorary Professor, Glasgow University), Chua Soon Huan(Deputy Chief Executive, PUB), Philippe Rohner (Co-founder and Managing Partner, Abic Partners LLC), and Diane D’Arras (Immediate Past President, International Water Association)
Achieving the right balance is key. How should organisations balance between economic growth with the sustainable use of precious resources like water? How do corporations quantify the benefits of investing in sustainability efforts like water recycling and resource recovery? This session invites leaders from both the industry and utility to share their journey. Learn about their imperatives for embarking on sustainability efforts and hear about ongoing and future initiatives that demonstrate their commitment towards the environment.

The biennial Singapore International Water Week aims to gather thought leaders, experts and practitioners from governments, utilities, academia and industry to share best practices, co-create innovative urban water solutions, and generate new business opportunities. Given the current COVID-19 situation and uncertain travel outlook, the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) 2021 will be taking place as a fully virtual event from 21 June to 2 July 2021 and rebranded as SIWW2021 Online.
As the kick-off centrepiece for the event, SIWW2021 Spotlight will bring together global water leaders to share perspectives and experiences on fostering innovation and building collaboration towards a more sustainable water future. Held over two high-level plenary sessions on 21 June 2021, SIWW2021 Spotlight will identify the challenges and discover the opportunities for stakeholders to harness innovation to achieve water security and sustainability.
Delegates to SIWW2021 Online can also look forward to a range of utility and industry focused content, with emphasis on innovation and solutions covering end-to-end of the urban water cycle. This will take its form through the flagship SIWW Water Convention which will present over 350 technical papers; a Water Expo of more than 120 international exhibitors, including six participating Pavilions; over 40 Thematic Webinars on key and emerging topics of interest; and specially curated Innovation to Practice (I2P) sessions profiling the end-user innovation journeys of industry and utilities.
