Launched in 2019, EB Impact is a Singapore-registered non-profit dedicated to delivering training and programmes that advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in Singapore and the Asia Pacific region. Read our impact report.

'Onwards: Sustainability Leadership in a Time of Urgency', raised close to $125,000  to support EB Impact's efforts to nurture a generation of leaders who can competently take on the challenge of creating positive sustainable development impact within their communities. The gala also unveiled a brand new initiative at our charity event: The EB Impact Sustainability Education Grant.

EB Impact’s gala dinner also featured the well-loved ‘Sustainability Leadership A-List’ awards by Eco-Business to recognise and celebrate individuals across the region and their leadership in effecting positive change across policy, business and society.

All the net proceeds from the gala, through table sales and auction items, will be used for all our programmes throughout the year.
