I work at Terrascope, which offers an end-to-end decarbonisation SaaS platform that enables enterprises to measure and manage their Scope-1, Scope-2 and Scope-3 emissions across operations, supply chains, and portfolios. As Climate Regulations Specialist, I help ensure that our product stays ahead of the regulatory curve and advise clients to navigate the dynamic and complex climate regulatory landscape.
Prior to joining Terrascope, I worked at EcoVadis - a global ESG ratings company - where I launched its Singapore office which served more than 800 companies within its first year of operations. The ratings include environmental, social, ethics and sustainable procurement metrics.
I started my career with the Singapore Government, spanning portfolios including manpower, education, transport and decarbonisation. I also helped spearhead the government's measures to fight Covid-19.
I graduated from the London School of Economics, SciencesPo Paris, and Oxford University. As an undergraduate at Oxford, I helped launch the inaugural Oxford Climate Forum - the UK's largest student-run climate change event.
Watching the documentary film 'An Inconvenient Truth' as a teenager opened my eyes to the perils of climate change.
Since then, I have devoted my academic, professional and personal pursuits to sustainability.
I'm glad to work for a company whose mission is to help other enterprises measure and manage their carbon emissions comprehensively. This is so critical to ensure that the world stays on track with the Paris Agreement outcomes to avoid dangerous climate change. While we are headquartered in Singapore, our ambition is global and our work drives positive impact across large enterprises around the world.
The field of sustainability – and especially the carbon sector – is broad and dynamic. Regulatory developments and carbon disclosure standards are changing rapidly and getting more complex, and people are struggling to keep up.
My team and I keep abreast of latest developments and continually improve our end-to-end decarbonisation platform product to stay relevant.
More than a decade ago, as a 17-year-old student, I rallied my friends to give free educational talks to raise awareness of climate change to more than 25,000 youths across 40 schools in Singapore.
Our audience told us that they were inspired to incorporate green habits in their lives after listening to us, so I consider this to be a good first step on my life-long journey to make a green impact.
