The Peak (Singapore) - - Contents -

When it comes to the en­vi­ron­ment, the tra­di­tional met­rics of growth do not nec­es­sar­ily ap­ply. Given the rapidly grow­ing pop­u­la­tion and fi­nite na­ture of nat­u­ral re­sources, progress falls to en­trepreneurs with the imag­i­na­tion to do more with less. By ques­tion­ing the sta­tus quo, har­ness­ing in­no­va­tion, and lay­ing the foun­da­tion for a more sus­tain­able ecosys­tem, the fol­low­ing green en­trepreneurs and ad­vo­cates are not only mak­ing an eco­nomic case for pro­tect­ing the planet, but also cre­at­ing greener spa­ces, cleaner wa­ters, and the con­di­tions that will al­low the earth to out­last the dam­age in­flicted by mankind over the past cen­tury. Th­ese are their sto­ries. PHO­TOG­RA­PHY VERON­ICA TAY ART DI­REC­TION FAZLIE HASHIM & DENISE REI LOW STYLING C.K. KOO
