FOCUS AREAS

We ponder the big questions... and the answers.

We have less than ten years to achieve the SDG targets, as well as significantly reduce carbon emissions. The Countdown to 2030 has begun. Let’s first make SDG conversations commonplace.

We believe that accelerating scalable, sustainable innovation would enable millions more people in Southeast Asia to be nourished, healthy, productive, and economically empowered.

We have identified three verticals and Sustainability as a “horizontal” as our focus areas, because they are where we believe Open Innovation can most catalyse change and result in meaningful solutions. These are big challenges and opportunities that need many organisations and people to collaborate on. Driving better outcomes requires experimentation and innovation across geographies and all parts of the supply chain.

We want to ensure that we contribute positively to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that the United Nations adopted in 2015 with targets to be achieved by 2030. At the same time, we are reminded at Glasgow COP26 of the urgency to take action to achieve a low-carbon future and avert an even more serious crisis.
