Sustainability – ESG
Caring for tomorrow
At Asian Tigers Singapore, we do our best to create a positive impact in society. We take our social and environmental responsibilities seriously by engaging in ethical business practices, fair employment and green initiatives.
Climate change matters. For the welfare of our future generations, we proactively commit to environmental sustainability and aim to achieve net-zero emissions. We continuously seek ways to reduce our carbon footprint and adopt sustainable practices in our business.
Our building has been fully fitted with a solar roof comprising 665 panels covering 1,718 square metres. The solar energy generated will be used to charge electric forklifts and power the air-conditioners in our warehouse and office. With this move, we commit to an annual avoidance of 196 tons of indirect carbon dioxide emissions.
We are working with established providers to implement greenhouse gas (GHG) monitoring of our operations and facilities. Our goal is to reduce our carbon emissions, by 2035, to 50% of our pre-pandemic emissions level, and to reach net-zero by 2050. We will also strive to reduce our scope 3 emissions (i.e. indirect emissions that occur in the upstream and downstream activities of the company) by engaging our suppliers and customers, and modifying our packaging materials and designs.
We are also very proud that since 2001, the Asian Tigers Group has been partnering WWF to double the population of wild tigers through our Tiger Action Fund. Our contributions are used to train rangers, support anti-poaching efforts, and promote research and advocacy. To date, we have donated well over $800,000 to help save this magnificent animal from extinction.
We commit to treating each employee as a cherished member of the family. That’s why the majority of our staff have worked with us for more than 10 years, and some, even 30 years or more.
