About Us
WISE

Women in Sustainability & Environment (WISE) is a registered Singapore society under the Registrar of Societies incorporated in June 2021 following the announcement of Singapore’s Green Plan in Feb 2021 by the Ministry of Sustainability and Environment.

 

WISE was officially launched in November 2021 in response to the conclusion of COP26 Glasgow. We are the first women’s society in Singapore formed to focus concerted gender action towards Singapore’s Green Plan 2030 and UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

 

The mission of WISE is primarily focused on SDG 12 – responsible consumption and production patterns. In supporting SDG 12, it is imperative that WISE ensures a strong, equal voice and representation of women in the business of sustainability whether as a consumer, investor or professional.
