Kwek Leng Joo elected president of Singapore Compact for CSR [News]
By Channel NewsAsia, 7 Jun 2012.
Managing director of City Developments Kwek Leng Joo has been elected as president of Singapore Compact for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for a three-year term, starting 2012.
He takes over from Hyflux CEO, Olivia Lum, who completed her second term this year.
Mr Kwek said while there has been a significant increase in Singapore Compact’s membership base over the past few years, convincing businesses to embrace CSR as part of their corporate and business strategy remains an uphill task.
That’s why his primary focus for Singapore Compact includes giving greater support to local businesses to initiate and sustain their CSR programmes and reporting.
