There’s something in the air - sustainability
With Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) issues being the focus of Ideas Exchange 2.0, it’s only natural that FCM Meetings & Events chose to align itself with like-minded partners. As industry leaders discussed these vital issues, FCM Meetings & Events welcomed Singapore Airlines on board as one of the key sponsors.
Singapore Airlines understands that every act counts when it comes to sustainability and when you’re flying to over 130 destinations worldwide every day, even the smallest change adds up. Along with FCM Meetings & Events, Singapore Airlines supports the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and is also a proud signatory to the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact.
With a formal and very public commitment to specific goals outlined by the United Nations, the airline is determined to make every aspect of flying, travel and MICE more sustainable. Singapore Airlines is passionate about addressing sustainability across ESG pillars, by focussing on the following areas.
Every meeting counts too
The FCM Meetings & Events team knows a lot about making MICE sustainable too, which is why partnering with Singapore Airlines makes good business and social sense. Building on this common ground, the airline offers a MICE program to inspire other partners, suppliers and customers to adopt sustainable practices.
