Kering, with the National University of Singapore Business School’s Center of Governance and Sustainability (CGS), will embark on a three-year collaboration to conduct research on the impact of climate and nature related transition strategies adopted by corporations across the Asia-Pacific region.


The partnership was announced at the Nature in the City forum, organized by the French National Museum of Natural History and the Embassy of France in Singapore with support from Kering.

Over the span of three-years, the university will conduct three studies on nature related issues and the climate transition. Covering companies in 14 Asia-Pacific jurisdictions, the research will thoroughly review the current state of nature and climate practices, strategies and reporting, and industry trends. The resulting insights and identified areas of improvement will then be presented business leaders, investors, regulators as well as public and non-profit sector leaders. 
Supporting rigorous academic research studies is In line with Kering’s commitment to education, collaboration, and innovation to contribute to climate action and achieve long-term sustainability.  

“At Kering, we believe in the power of collective action as seen through our robust network of partners in several regions around the world. Today, I am proud to announce our partnership with CGS at NUS Business School, which combines academic rigor, research expertise, and real-world experience – key levers for a successful impact. The sustainability challenges we face today are complex, and by partnering with an outstanding university renowned for its expertise in sustainability topics, we are exemplifying the Group’s commitment to collaborate with partners on the Asia-Pacific region’s sustainability journey,” states Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief Sustainability and Institutional Affairs Officer of Kering.

“Nature underpins all economic activities and human well-being. Therefore, the disclosure of nature-related practices and strategies is crucial to provide transparency and accountability for a company’s environmental impact and sustainability practices. Through the partnership with Kering, we are poised to drive meaningful change by developing a baseline for measuring biodiversity tracking and examining climate transition strategies across diverse industries. This is a significant step in encouraging the integration of nature-centric approaches into corporate strategies, fostering a more sustainable and resilient future for all,” says Professor Lawrence Loh, Director of the Centre for Governance and Sustainability at NUS Business School.
