The new TfS Singapore team aims to drive sustainable supply chains in the chemical industries in Singapore, Southeast Asia and beyond.
TfS proudly announces the launch of the TfS Singapore team consisting of representatives from Henkel, Arkema, Azelis, Semperit, Solvay and Syngenta. This TfS team in Singapore is open to all TfS member companies.
Singapore is an attractive base for supply chain management due to its sound logistics infrastructure and connectivity, innovation ecosystem and national push for greater sustainable development as detailed in the Singapore Green Plan 2030.
“For TfS, Asia is a focus region, and Singapore is a major hub in Southeast Asia. By sharing experiences and combining resources and scale, the TfS team in Singapore aims to drive sustainable supply chains in the chemical industries in Singapore, Southeast Asia and beyond,” said Thomas Holenia, President of Henkel Singapore.
Aligned with the global TfS strategy 2020 – 2025, TfS Singapore team aims to foster a community, utilize the high standards that TfS has created, and pivot from measurement to the delivery of substantial positive impact in the chemical supply chain. Core topics on the agenda are sustainability assessments of suppliers as well as best practice exchange and joint actions, with the current focus on the reduction of carbon and greenhouse gas emissions.
Collaboration is key to achieving these endeavours. As such, the TfS Singapore team will seek to connect with other TfS members, strengthen engagement with its base of suppliers and business partners, and explore cooperation with the Singapore Chemical Industry Council.
The launch of TfS Singapore team represents another milestone for TfS in terms of expanding its reach into Asia as well as progressing in its global mission to push the sustainability performance of chemical suppliers around the world in both mature and emerging markets.
