The CleanEnviro Summit Singapore (CESG) 2022 will return from April 17-21 this year for its fifth edition at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre at Marina Bay Sands.
Returning after a three-year hiatus, this year’s event will be themed Towards Sustainable and Climate-Resilient Cities.
CESG is a global networking platform for thought leaders, regulators, policymakers, and industry captains to discuss pressing and pertinent issues such as promoting circular economy frameworks, adopting climate-resilient policies and safeguarding public hygiene standards. The five focus areas are: Waste as Resource, Enhanced Hygiene Standards, Effective Pest Management, Sustainable Energy, and Pollution Control.
A feature at every CESG is the Environmental & Water Leaders Forum, jointly organised with Singapore International Water Week (SIWW). This yearâ€™s forum will feature industry leaders and senior government officials from around the world including Michele Blom, Netherlandsâ€™ vice-minister of infrastructure and water management, and Paul Bulcke, chairman, Nestle.
The forum will tackle issues contributing to climate change such as urbanisation and population growth, finite resources and the need for clean water, sanitation and public hygiene. Leaders at the forum will share their views on how nations and organisations can capitalise on the sustainability challenges and transform them into opportunities.
Environmental leaders will also get the opportunity to connect and forge new partnerships at the Clean Environment Leaders Summit (CELS). Speakers at the plenary sessions of CELS include Grace Fu, Singapore’s minister for sustainability and the environment; Rajeev Menon, board member of the US-ASEAN Business Council and president, Marriott International for Asia-Pacific excluding Greater China; and Amy Khor, Singapore’s senior minister of state for sustainability and the environment.
Another highlight of CESG is the Clean Environment Convention (CEC), where industry professionals and technical experts will get to network and exchange ideas about the latest solutions and best practices to meet environmental needs and challenges. The Convention will comprise four tracks: Sustainable Energy and Energy Efficiency; Resource Sustainability; Advancing Public Hygiene (Environmental Cleaning; Disinfection & Pest Management in an Urban Environment and Innovations & Technology in Climate Change Defence (held in collaboration with the Asia Climate Forum).
For the exhibition component, the Environment Expo will feature innovative solutions and the latest technologies on cleaning, pest management, waste and resource management, pollution control, and sustainable energy. Innovative solutions to build resilience, and address extreme weather and climate change, will also be on showcase in the Asia Climate Forum Exhibit.
Lastly, CESG 2022 will feature a Youth Environment Leaders Immersion Programme for the first time. The programme will provide opportunities for a group of youth leaders to network and exchange ideas with their peers, as well as learn from accomplished environment leaders and industry captains in the environmental sustainability space.
