Temasek Sustainability Chief Doubles Down on the ‘Carbon Ecosystem’

Ed Ballard of The Wall Street Journal interviews Steve Howard, chief sustainability officer of Temasek.

The C3 Take
  • Singapore’s state-owned investor Temasek Holdings has poured $3.6 billion into the launch of its GenZero fund, a platform that will invest in decarbonization efforts around the globe.
  • GenZero will allocate a large share of its funding to develop commercial carbon markets.
  • The fund’s portfolio includes stakes in carbon offset company South Pole, a fund developing forestry assets in Southeast Asia, and a startup that is developing sensors to accurately measure carbon stored in farmland.

“In addition to helping manage the climate strategies of the companies in Temasek’s portfolio, which includes carbon-heavy businesses such as Singapore Airlines Ltd. and Sembcorp Marine Ltd. , an engineering company that builds and services oil rigs, Dr. Howard works with Temasek’s investing teams on incorporating sustainability considerations in the way they look for new investments.”
