StarHub’s green initiatives have garnered kudos internationally, with the Singapore infocommunications provider selected for Corporate Knights’ Global 100, a list of the world’s most sustainable corporations, clinching 66th position.
The announcement was made at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, by the Corporate Knights, a Toronto-based media and investment research company. The Global 100 is recognised as the world’s most credible corporate sustainability ranking and consists of the 100 top-performing stocks worldwide on a range of sector-specific ‘sustainability’ metrics.
StarHub is the only local infocommunications provider to have been listed in this prestigious ranking.
“We are very proud to have been listed amongst other sustainable giants from around the world,” shared Neil Montefiore, Chief Executive Officer, StarHub. “Although we are a relatively young company, we have always believed in doing the right thing when it comes to taking care of the community and environment in which we operate.”
In 2012, StarHub published its first full-fledged Sustainability Report—certified Application Level B—based on the GRI framework, initiated an islandwide electronic waste recycling programme for consumers, planted trees and implemented paperless processes internally and for its consumers, amongst other green efforts.
“More and more these days, investors are leaning towards companies that look at the triple bottom line,” concluded Mr Montefiore. “We constantly strive to achieve that true integration of People, Planet and Profit, and being listed on the Global 100 is a validation of our on-going efforts to be sustainable.”
