Sustainability in Action

We have established sustainability as one of our four core pillars firm wide and embarked on several sustainability initiatives.

  • In September 2021, UOBAM Singapore kicked off its internal donation drive campaign, raising money to help aid an IPC-Status food charity, Food from the Heart “Project Belanja!”
  • The campaign was held in support of Food from the Heart’s “Project Belanja!”, an app-driven food redemption programme providing freshly cooked meals by hawker owners to those in need.
  • Food from the Heart and “Project Belanja!” have been playing a very meaningful role in supporting less-fortunate families and their future generations while preserving the long-term development of Singapore’s hawker culture
  • UOBAM Singapore raised a total of S$10,000 (an equivalent of 2,500 hot meals) that was donated to households in need.
 

Recycling made easier with recycling bins around the office

  • UOBAM’s commitment to Sustainability starts from the bottom up.
  • We have implemented several initiatives to promote sustainable practices in our offices.
