Mr. Tan Swee Yiow, SGBC's Immediate Past President as well as Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of SGBC Founding Member Keppel Land, has been appointed as Treasurer of the World Green Building Council Board of Directors (2020-2022).

The WorldGBC Board is an influential group of global leaders that is driving the largest global-regional-local action network to deliver net zero, healthy, equitable and sustainable built environments for everyone, everywhere.

Mr. Tan has been appointed for a second term to the WorldGBC’s Board of Directors for his leadership and dedication to the sustainable building movement, both in Singapore and at the global level. He was previously elected to the WorldGBC Board for the 2018-2020 term.

As environmental and climate change issues are taking greater prominence and businesses are paying more attention to its implications, Mr. Tan plans to work with various stakeholders in his new appointment to bring about greater awareness on the role of green buildings in mitigating climate change and carbon reduction. With his vast experience in real estate and investment, Mr. Tan will also help WorldGBC promote climate-friendly investing.
