Companies in the business of doing good

More than 40 Singapore-based companies, big and small, convened to recognise the inaugural Champions of Good at Shangri-La hotel on Nov 7. Organised by the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), the event - graced by Minister for Finance Heng Swee Keat as the guest of honour - recognises businesses for their efforts and commitment in giving back to the society.

Melissa Kwee, CEO of NVPC, said: "Society is facing complex challenges at an unprecedented level, and we believe that businesses have the potential to make a significant difference."
