Are you passionate about sustainability? Do you want to take action?
The urgency to transit to a more sustainable world has never been more apparent. It is clear that companies have a big role to play in the transition to a sustainable future, but many have little idea on how to go about doing so. For over 10 years, SL2 has been working with companies to view sustainability as an opportunity rather than a cost. We are now at an inflection point and time is running out. Join us in our journey to help companies (and our planet) find success by increasing the adoption of sustainable business practices and circular business models.
Sustainable Living Lab (SL2) is a sustainability consultancy and innovation lab founded in Singapore in 2011. We specialise in creating and implementing rapidly evolving, impactful solutions. Our expertise lies in leveraging technology as a tool for sustainability, with a strong emphasis on a community-driven approach to implementation. Our practical yet ambitious approach has helped us build a client base across governments, international development organisations, leading multinational corporations (MNCs), and small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
Headquartered in Singapore, we have established a strong presence in Asia and beyond. Our strategically located offices in India, Indonesia, and the United States enable us to effectively engage, understand, and tailor our solutions to specific contexts.
