SATS, UOB Partner for Supplier Engagement and EV Workshop

Our Bureau - : Feb 1, 2024 - : 9:49 pm

SATS Ltd, a global provider of ground handling, air cargo, and food solutions, collaborates with UOB to promote sustainability across its supply chain. The Supplier Engagement Programme targets small-medium enterprises (SMEs) in Singapore, on Thursday (Feb. 1).

The SATS x UOB Electric Mobility Workshop introduced the company’s critical and strategic suppliers to the benefits of transitioning to Commercial Electric Vehicles (EVs) for their operations.

During the workshop, suppliers learned about various factors influencing the transition to EVs, including financial considerations, vehicle attributes, and access to charging infrastructure. They had the opportunity to view and test-drive Commercial EVs distributed by Hong Seh Evolution.

“As a responsible steward, it is our duty to support our suppliers in their decarbonisation journeys and provide them with the means of operating in a more sustainable manner,” says Tan Yen Ling, Head of Group Sustainability, SATS. “Our suppliers adopting decarbonisation solutions also contributes to SATS’ objectives of minimising the environmental impact of our supply chain.”

Mr Ernest Tan, Head of Consumer Goods, Sector Solutions Group, UOB, said, “Collaborations are powerful catalysts in accelerating sustainability adoption amongst businesses. Our deep understanding of SMEs enables us to simplify sustainable financing for SATS’ suppliers through our programmes such as U-Drive and U-Solar, while providing support for sustainability ratings. We believe this collaboration with SATS is a win-win for like-minded large organisations and their SME ecosystems in meeting our collective net zero goals.”

SATS has recently attained the LowCarbonSG logo, encouraging its suppliers to join the program as well. LowCarbonSG is a capability-building initiative enabling local businesses in Singapore to monitor and reduce their carbon emissions.
