A new era of ESG

Maximising profit can no longer be the sole goal of future-focused organisations. Our world is facing global and systemic challenges, and in response, our industry is transitioning towards a more sustainable framework, focused on environmental, social and corporate governance.

It might go without saying, but the notion of ‘tech for good’ is no longer a niche activity. It serves as the core function for many organisations, including ourselves.

Technology itself acts as a crucial tool in facilitating, accelerating and supporting the people who seek to make a positive impact. Our PALO IT Hong Kong team—from project inception to delivery—works towards this end.

Sustainable Development Goals—a blueprint for all

Awareness is the first step in change, and sitting front and centre in our company consciousness are the United Nations' 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs), a set of global targets designed by the UN to build a better and more sustainable future for all.

By serving as our North Star, they define “what” we need to do, so our organisation can focus on the “how”. From influencing behaviours, to building sustainable products, to rallying our ecosystem towards large-scale change, any impactful technology that seeks to make meaningful change must keep the SDGs in mind.

The B Corp movement

Certified B Corporations are leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good, voluntarily meeting the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. There are over 2,700 B Corps from more than 150 industries across 60+ countries.

Our certification journey has helped us consider our own operating model and become more conscious of the many ways we are impacting on our world. These empowering truths keep us on our toes, and ultimately reveal greater strategies in becoming and remaining a sustainable organisation.

Currently, our offices in Singapore and Hong Kong are fully certified, and we’re working towards certification across all other locations.
