Temasek Advisory Network

Ecosperity Advisory Group

This group complements our broader Ecosperity platform. It brings together leaders from the business, public and non-governmental sectors to exchange ideas, build partnerships and explore solutions for sustainability-related challenges, such as climate change and resource scarcity. The group also engages with members of the Temasek ecosystem. Members of the group include senior thought leaders from the World Resources Institute, Stockholm Resilience Centre, and Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation.

Clean Energy Advisory Group

This group, which comprises eminent leaders in the clean energy space, engages members of the Temasek ecosystem on topics such as fusion energy, the hydrogen economy, advanced biofuels, and Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage. Their discussions also focus on building an ecosystem centred around technology, policy developments, research, operations, safety regulations, and manpower training.

Sharing with our Ecosystem

Over the year, with the COVID-19 situation limiting travel, we organised several virtual forums and events with our ecosystem partners and portfolio companies to exchange perspectives and encourage collaboration. These included sector and market specific conferences that brought together investee companies to learn from one another and explore partnerships. We also organised specialist roundtables for leaders from disciplines such as finance, technology, human resources, legal and tax, and communications. Thematic forums are hosted for Chairpersons, Board Members, and C-suite leaders on topics such as innovation, sustainability, cybersecurity and governance.
