McKinsey officially opens its Green Campus in Singapore

25 October 2012 - McKinsey officially opened its Green Campus in Jurong Island. This is McKinsey’s first Green Campus model factory in Asia as well as McKinsey’s first process model factory in the world. The Green Campus is located within the Chemical Process Technology Centre operated by Petrofac and is a live and fully operational refinery. 

Companies with manufacturing activities in Singapore and the region can benefit from the curriculum provided by McKinsey. Specifically, the Green Campus Model factor will be used to train executives and front line operations managers across a range of core operations issues. This gives participants the opportunity to learn energy efficient processes across six live learning stations – from a water cooling system to an operational furnace. 

“The establishment of the Green Campus as part of McKinsey Innovation Campus in Singapore underscores our commitment to bring the best of McKinsey’s global experience to companies in Singapore and across Asia to help them address their toughest challenges,” said Mr Oliver Tonby, Managing Partner of McKinsey & Company Southeast Asia. “Our decision to locate these new capabilities in Singapore reflects the growing focus on innovation in this market, the commitment to energy efficiency and drive for excellence.” 

Mr Quek Swee Kuan, Assistant Managing Director at the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), welcomed McKinsey’s decision. “The Green Campus is McKinsey’s first process model factory in the world. This is a strong validation of Singapore’s status as a globally competitive manufacturing hub, with an existing base of knowledge intensive manufacturing operations. Consulting firms like McKinsey can centralise their Asian knowledge resources in Singapore and leverage the base of sophisticated lead demand here to develop new consulting solutions and serve their growing base of clients throughout Asia.”
