2021 has been declared as the Year of Celebrating SG Women. In particular, we celebrate women in the sustainability business who are doing good to build a sustainable future. Here at Sembcorp Energy Singapore, we honour all our Women in Sustainability across the Energy, Water and Waste businesses. At Sembcorp, sustainability is our business. Hear from some of our colleagues on their journey in sustainable development and what it takes to be a part of it.
WHAT DOES SUSTAINABILITY
MEAN TO YOU?
Liew Yien Phin
Asset Management, Utilities
Sustainability is about the right balance between the environment and the economy. At Sembcorp, we play a part in providing that balance for our community and other stakeholders. My wish is for people to coexist harmoniously with nature.
Market & Portfolio Strategy
Sustainability is in our hands. We can each make a positive difference by making mindful consumption choices daily. Every small change we make will add up to profoundly impact future generations.
Plant Maintenance Engineer
What is sustainability to me? As part of the power and utilities maintenance team, it’s about taking on the challenges brought by globalisation and digitalisation, and being ready to upgrade and provide solutions to optimise the efficiency of our power plants.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF CAREER
ADVICE YOU WILL GIVE TO OTHER WOMEN
Business Development, Waste Management
Choose not to settle. This is a piece of advice I’d give to women entering the workforce. Take every opportunity to push yourself out of your comfort zone. The experiences you pick up will give you the best growth. And, more importantly, have fun along the way!
Find a job that can help shape the world you want to live in. That’s how you can make a difference every single day.
Performance Excellence, Water
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. Take control of your own career path. Be passionate about your work; be confident. Be prepared to spot opportunities and be brave to take on challenges.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT YOUR
ROLE IN THE SUSTAINABILITY SPACE?
Energy-from-Waste Plant Engineer
Working in a company with a strong emphasis on environmental protection has sparked my passion towards sustainability. As an engineer, achieving operational availability has contributed towards Sembcorp and the economy’s growth. Always remember, little drops of water make a mighty ocean!
Business Development, Integrated Solutions
Being a frontliner means I get to interact with customers to understand their sustainability needs and challenges. It’s great that I get to share our customisable integrated solutions to help them achieve their sustainability targets.
Collections Division, Waste Management
It’s exciting that my job is crucial to protecting the environment. I love each and every day as it comes.
