As part of stewarding the City of Good vision for Singapore, Company of Good is a programme under the Corporate and Industry Partnership division that connects organisations to do good strategically, sustainably, and impactfully. Through its initiatives, like-minded organisations can learn, network, and collaborate for good.  

Since its inception in 2016, Company of Good has connected more than 2,000 organisations that do good in different forms. With the impetus towards Corporate Purpose, NVPC has announced a refreshed Company of Good strategy that is now offering an exciting opportunity to help cultivate a future where every organisation in Singapore is purpose-driven – striving to make a net positive impact on society, across environmental, human, social and economic dimensions.

This AfA arose from Emerging Stronger Conversations (ESC) sessions organised by NVPC, where participants collectively envisioned a business ecosystem that supports and enables corporates to effectively align purpose and profit to become a force for good in Singapore.
