*This is a non-WSQ module.
Co-delivered with: TÜV SÜD



Green Compass™ aims to help companies become more environmentally sustainable. Currently, some companies may not know where to start or how to scale up their environmental sustainability transformation, as they face a wide range of environmental sustainability issues and an even wider range of actions that they can take to address these issues.

Through the four-step Learn-Assess-Prioritise-Plan model, Green Compass™ will guide companies in their environmental sustainability transformation. It can be used by companies at any stage of their transformation journey.


About the Programme

Green Compass™ is an environmental sustainability assessment and strategic roadmapping tool that helps companies to become more environmentally sustainable by better managing their carbon emissions, energy, water, and waste impacts, as well as chart strategic roadmaps for their transformation based on their current environmental sustainability levels.

Through the four-step Learn-Assess-Prioritise-Plan model, companies will first learn about sustainability trends and methodologies and assess their companies’ environmental sustainability level., Next, they will prioritise areas with the biggest financial and strategic impact and chart the strategic roadmaps for their sustainability transformation based on their assessed sustainability level.

Companies can utilise Green Compass™ through this 16-hour Green Compass™ course, co-delivered by A*STAR’s Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and TÜV SÜD.
