Singapore — 21 September 2023 — Ecolab, a global sustainability leader offering water, hygiene, and infection prevention solutions, continues to enhance its presence in Singapore with the opening of its new regional office.

To celebrate the opening of the facility, Ecolab welcomed guests to a special event, highlighting insights into the company’s upcoming collaborations in science, digitization and sustainability.

In addition, the event showcased how Ecolab partners with public sectors and industry organizations across various sectors to make the world cleaner, safer and healthier, helping Ecolab’s customers succeed, while protecting people and resources vital to life.

The new facility will accelerate its coverage to help public and private organizations achieve sustainability targets and commitments in line with the Singapore Green Plan 2030, the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and the Paris Agreement, as Singapore strives to reach its net zero emissions aspirations by 2050.

In line with the Singapore Green Plan 2030, Ecolab highlighted additional science and sustainability offerings and initiatives during the event, including Ecolab’s Climate Intelligence and Advanced Recycling for Plastics, and an improved cleaning program for PET Recycling, which promotes safer and more sustainable processes for PET plants. All three are innovative solutions centered around supporting Ecolab customers’ productivity and sustainability goals, now available to customers across Singapore and the wider Southeast Asia region.

The opening ceremony saw Ecolab’s senior leadership and local team welcome customers, and media together with high-ranking stakeholders from local and international government organizations. These included representatives from American Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Board of Singapore, and the United States’ Ambassador to Singapore, Jonathan Kaplan.

Ecolab Senior vice president and Market Head for Southeast Asia, Gregory Lukasik welcomed guests to the opening event and said:

“As we embark on our next chapter of growth in Singapore and Southeast Asia, it’s critically important that we are providing the ideal infrastructure and resources for our customers and partners. We know from the global Ecolab Watermark™ Survey, launched this week, that consumers everywhere have high expectations for how businesses and governments respond to climate change and the water crisis. We are helping address these concerns through the deployment of digital technologies connected with Ecolab Global Intelligence Center that support data-driven performance and help industries achieve their ambitious business and sustainability objectives.”

Driving valuable outcomes and better water management for customers

As part of the event, Ecolab showcased its ongoing partnership with Carlton Hotel Singapore.

Darren Ware, general manager, of Carlton Hotel explained: “Partnering with Ecolab has helped us significantly elevate our overall guest experience. Working with Ecolab has also helped us maintain the high-quality, clean, and comfortable hotel experience that Carlton guests expect and with their innovative water management programs have reduced water usage, delivering energy savings in our cooling towers.

Guest of Honor at the event is Ambassador Jonathan Kaplan, who was impressed with the ongoing positive impact from Ecolab in Singapore and the surrounding region:

“Singapore is a great example to Asia and the wider world of how a focus on sustainability and technology can grow the economy. It’s fantastic to see the work that Ecolab is doing locally and regionally and to witness the tangible benefits from the Ecolab teams’ expertise, technology and solutions delivery. Water scarcity, food hygiene and public health are some of the biggest challenges mankind is facing. With this in mind, it’s inspiring to see Ecolab delivering solutions that help make the world a cleaner, safer and healthier place. We wish the company every success at its new office.”

Mr. Soo Haw Yun, vice president, Investment Facilitation, Singapore Economic Development Board, said, “We congratulate Ecolab on the opening of its new regional office.
