Small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) must be part of the conversation regarding sustainability. After all, they are the “drivers of green and inclusive growth”, according to a 2018 white paper by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
Shouldering equal responsibility towards the economic, social and natural environments as large corporations, SMEs are a force to be reckoned with, especially since they make up 99 per cent of Singapore’s enterprises.
According to the Department of Statistics, there were 273,100 enterprises in 2019.
