Specialist sustainability consultancy ERM will expand its Southeast Asia (SEA) hub in Singapore with support from the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB).

The firm says it will create up to 40 new roles at the SEA Hub in Singapore. They will work on areas such as new energy; integrated environmental, social and governance (ESG) due diligence; monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV); and sustainable asset retirement. 

ERM’s global CEO Tom Reichert and ERM’s Asia CEO Nat Vanitchyangkul announced the plans on May 20 at a client event at ERM’s office in Collyer Quay. Representatives from EDB, the British High Commissioner and the British PM’s Trade Envoy to Singapore were also in attendance.

According to ERM’s website, the firm’s other offices in the region are in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. ERM’s branch office in Brunei is also managed by ERM in Malaysia.

ERM has over 80 employees in Singapore. Globally, ERM claims its staff count exceeds 8,000 across 40 markets.

Reichert says: “We are excited to deepen our roots in Singapore and contribute even further to the region's sustainable development goals. ERM’s purpose is shaping a sustainable future with the world’s leading organisations. We are delighted that, with the support of the EDB, we are poised to increase our impact in the region with the aim of helping to deliver a more sustainable future for Asia.”

Lim Wey-Len, executive vice president of EDB, says: “Singapore is home to a diverse ecosystem of carbon services companies shaping decarbonisation efforts in Southeast Asia. We welcome the expansion of ERM’s regional hub in Singapore, which will deepen our capabilities in areas such as carbon markets, the deployment of hydrogen as an alternative energy source and the early decommissioning of coal plants. We look forward to partnering with ERM in their next phase of growth and creation of new job opportunities in the sector.”
