SGBC is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Joelle Chen as the World Green Building Council’s Asia Pacific Regional Network Manager. Her appointment is made possible with the support of Founding Regional Partners AGC Asia Pacific Pte Ltd and LG Electronics. She will be based in Singapore and will operate out of SGBC’s office premises.
An architect by training with a wealth of industry knowledge and expertise gleaned from her previous roles at both private firms and the Economic Development Board (EDB), Joelle will work with Asia Pacific GBCs from 15 countries to develop programmes and meaningful cross-sector collaborations. She will be focusing on strengthening the green building business case for investors; reinforcing the role that health, wellbeing and productivity plays in green buildings; and sharing best practices through the WorldGBC’s Asia Pacific Leadership in Green Building Awards, among other initiatives.
The Asia Pacific Regional Network Manager serves as the nexus between regional green building organisations, at the same time providing a direct link to the WorldGBC. SGBC is delighted to have the opportunity to further strengthen our connections with regional GBCs and provide members with greater insights and outreach into the greater green building marketplace beyond Singapore.
