The Nature Conservancy Takes Root in Singapore to Advance a Nature-Positive Future

Global conservation organisation The Nature Conservancy (TNC), a global environmental nonprofit has announced its official expansion into Singapore.

Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), its newly established office in Singapore will serve as a strategic global centre for partnerships, innovation, and scientific research, focused on addressing the interconnected crises of climate change and biodiversity loss.

In line with this commitment, TNC is actively expanding its team in Singapore, with plans to hire at least 20 new staff members over the next five years. This investment in Singapore-based talent demonstrates TNC’s dedication to building a strong foundation and expertise in Singapore, to deliver tangible, lasting results for both people and nature.

This expansion also aligns with Singapore’s ambitious Singapore Green Plan (SGP) 2030, which seeks to position Singapore as a leading centre for green finance and services to facilitate Asia’s transition to a low-carbon and sustainable future, and establish Singapore as a carbon services hub in Asia.

“We are excited to build on The Nature Conservancy’s seven decades of experience with our expansion into Singapore, a crucial piece of the ecological puzzle in Asia-Pacific,” said Jennifer Morris, Chief Executive Officer of The Nature Conservancy.

“We understand the pressing challenges faced by this rapidly growing region, and we look forward to our work with partners in Singapore to further strengthen the deployment of nature-based solutions that deliver triple benefits for climate, nature, and people.”

With over 4.3 billion people and diverse landscapes, the Asia Pacific region as a whole faces increasing pressures from urbanisation, consumption, and resource demands, TNC said in a statement.
