Nanyang Technological University Singapore recently inaugurated its 8th "zero energy" building, Gaia. This architectural marvel serves as the new home for the Nanyang Business School (NBS) and holds the distinction of being the largest wooden building in Asia.
Celebrating a Green Milestone
As a follow-up to Gaia's official launch in May by Education Minister Mr Chan Chun Sing, NBS hosted an intimate event “An Evening at Gaia” on 2 November for corporate partners and NBS alumni.
Shaping the Future: Sustainability and Business Transformation
A highlight of the event was the NBS Knowledge Lab Distinguished Panel discussion, themed "Shaping the Future: Sustainability and Business Transformation." Esteemed panellists Mr Tan Chong Meng, Group CEO (PSA International); Mr Dave Sivaprasad, Managing Director & Partner, Southeast Asia Lead for Climate and Sustainability (BCG); and Mr Damian Chan, Executive Vice President of Policy, Planning and Strategy (EDB) engaged in a thought-provoking conversation about the vital role of business and industry transformations in addressing environmental sustainability challenges. The panel was moderated by Deputy Dean of NBS, Prof Boh Wai Fong.
Prof Boh said: “We are honoured to host the NBS Knowledge Lab Distinguished Panel as a highlight of this special occasion. The theme, Shaping the Future: Sustainability and Business Transformation, resonates deeply with our commitment to fostering meaningful dialogues, and as a business school in a technological university, we are well-positioned to provide and deliver impactful change and influence transformation”.
