The topic of sustainability was on everybody's lips last Wednesday at Generation T's first Gen.T Table event. Hosted in conjunction with CNA Luxury, the event took place at Tangerine restaurant—a tranquil dining venue tucked away within the idyllic grounds of Equarius Hotel at Resorts World Sentosa—and sought to bring together like-minded honourees from the Singapore Gen.T community to delve deeper into pertinent and pressing issues of our time.

Shortly after serving the second course, which was a delectable sea bass dish served with galangal broth infused with stalks of aromatic lemongrass, a panel discussion that revolved around the theme of sustainability took centre stage and was moderated by CNA's very own award-winning presenter Glenda Chong.

Our panellists, who included co-founder and managing partner of SoGal Ventures and Gen.T 2017 honouree Pocket Sun, managing director of Miniwiz Singapore and fellow Gen.T 2017 honouree Tan Szue Hann, as well as the founder of Goodstuph and Tatler Tribe member Pat Law took turns to share their two cents on the subject. From the importance of building a sustainable workforce to its impact on a business' longevity, the conversation concluded in a resounding recognition that sustainability is a lifestyle, and companies can no longer ignore this issue if they wish for their businesses to be profitable.
