Greenpac’s long-serving entrepreneurial guru Susan Chong is a far-sighted businesswoman and proponent of sustainability  

Profile


Susan Chong had a vision of saving the world from the blight of packaging waste when she launched Greenpac as a one-woman operation in 2002. The firm is now a leader in the re-engineering, design and distribution of eco-friendly packaging products and solutions, and counts some of the world’s largest Fortune 500 companies in aviation, defence and biotech as its industrial clients.

Among the firm’s achievements are re-engineered wooden packing pallets, which are durable and lightweight, and obtained from sustainable tree farms. This translates into significant savings for clients shipping their products by air as well as less waste thanks to the sustainable material. Greenpac also offers other custom-designed packaging options to suit its many clients. 

Chong’s firm has won various awards and certifications for its innovative and eco-friendly contributions, including Spring Singapore’s Quality Award in 2014. Greenpac also regularly clinches the WorldStar Packaging Award for innovation and quality in packaging. 

Chong encourages her 50‑strong workforce to focus on the community and environment, and practises an inclusive hiring policy in employing ex-convicts as well as people with disabilities. She also picked up sign language to communicate more easily with some of her staff.

Chong enjoyed playing the piano when she was young but had to sell hers off to finance her schooling. She never forgot her love of playing, however, and recently bought herself a grand piano to remind her of her childhood.
