SINGAPORE: Some small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) in Singapore have ramped up their efforts to go green, but continue to face challenges like calculating and reporting emissions accurately.

Cold chain logistics firm SFS Pharma Logistics, for instance, has switched out single-use styrofoam boxes for insulated ones that can last for up to five years.

Previously, the firm used traditional thermal packaging which involved cooling gel packs – a laborious affair that also came with high costs and energy consumption. 

The company, which handles the transportation of pharmaceutical items that need to be kept cool, has also swapped its traditional diesel vehicles for electric ones, and shifted from using electricity to solar panels in its warehouses. 

Part of the reason behind the firm’s green push is that it needs to comply with requirements from its clients, who are mostly from the United States and Europe, and request for a sustainability policy.
