Sharing Insights on E-Waste Recycling and Careers in Sustainability at Workforce Singapore

On 18 May 2024, I had the privilege of conducting a lively sharing session at Workforce Singapore. This event provided a platform to discuss the vital work KGS does in helping customers recycle their e-waste and shed light on the career landscape within the sustainability industry.

A Deep Dive into E-Waste Recycling

During the session, I elaborated on KGS’s mission to be the answer to all e-waste questions. I highlighted our company’s innovative and eco-friendly solutions for managing and recycling electronic waste, emphasising the importance of responsible disposal to prevent environmental harm. Participants learned about the various services KGS offers, from lithium-ion battery recycling to comprehensive data destruction.

Exploring Careers in Sustainability

I also provided valuable insights into what it means to develop a career in sustainability. I discussed the growing opportunities within this field and encouraged attendees to consider sustainability not just as a career switch, but as a way of integrating sustainable practices into their current roles and industries. I emphasised that one can be a sustainability champion within their organization, driving the movement towards greater sustainability from within.

Learning from Experienced Professionals

Through our interactions, I was humbled by the wealth of experience and vast knowledge of the participants. Many of them had significant expertise in their respective professions, and it was heartwarming to see their keen interest in making a positive impact through sustainability. I shared my belief that sustainability can be a way of life, and that everyone has a role to play in promoting environmental stewardship.

A Call to Action

My message resonated with them is that you don’t need to switch careers to contribute to sustainability. By becoming sustainability champions in their own organisations, professionals can lead the charge towards a greener future. This aligns perfectly with KGS’s vision to be a conduit of influence towards sustainability and society.
