Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC), the statutory board for Singapore’s island resort of Sentosa, has appointed Anthony Tan to head up its sustainability function.

In his new role as sustainability director, Tan will work on SDC’s sustainability roadmap, which includes achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. His job will also involve encouraging other businesses on Sentosa to limit the island’s environment footprint.

Tan joins the organisation from DBS Bank, where he spent almost 10 years, latterly as senior vice president of sustainable operations.

He replaces former SDC sustainability director Richie Lee, who has since moved to United Overseas Bank. Lee now heads up sustainability for the bank’s corporate real estate services arm.

Tan will report to Lee Cheh Hsien, SDC’s divisional director of planning.

“I look forward to collaborating with all our stakeholders in building a Sustainable Sentosa,” Tan said in a statement.

Over his career, Tan has held numerous roles in sourcing and supply chain management. Prior to his stint at DBS, he was director of global supply management for American Express.

He has also worked for Standard Chartered Bank, electrical appliances firm Honeywell, and IBM in sourcing roles.
