DKSH Accelerates Best Sustainability Practices With Swiss Chamber of Commerce APAC

DKSH joined the Swiss Chambers of Commerce to intensify collaboration on sustainability initiatives in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

Singapore, March 18, 2022 – DKSH collaborated with the various Swiss Chambers of Commerce in the first conference of its events series spanning the Asia Pacific (APAC) region centered on the theme of sustainability. DKSH was among three Swiss companies invited to share best sustainability practices in this inaugural virtual event which attracted about 200 participants from 19 markets.

Organized by the Swiss Chambers of Commerce in the APAC region and the Swiss-Asian Chamber of Commerce in Switzerland (SwissCham APAC), the event titled “No Time to Wait: Sustainable Solutions for a Brighter Future” comprises a series of four conferences this year, providing a platform for Swiss companies and members of the SwissCham APAC to share expertise and best practices within the communities. 

Michel Huguenin, Member of the Board of SwissCham Singapore, said: “With less than a decade to implement the 2030 agenda for sustainable development set forward by COP26, we saw an urgent need to work together and join forces. At the Swiss Chamber of Commerce, we have found new ways of intensifying collaboration among members of our Chambers to bring positive impact to our communities. This is the objective of our 2022 series of webinars focusing on the theme of sustainability.”

Speaking at the event, Sheena Flannery, Director, Group Marketing, Consumer Goods & Healthcare, DKSH, commented: “In DKSH, we recognize our responsibility for our environmental impact, and we take proactive steps to address climate change. We are privileged to support the Swiss Chamber of Commerce by sharing some best practices on how we implement sustainability in a competitive business environment, with particular focus on how we manage our environmental and social footprint.”
