A small delegation of 10 undergraduate students from an accounting theory class recently went on an expedition to Pekanbaru, Indonesia to learn more about the environmental and social impact of haze in the region.
Aimed at integrating theory with practice, the trip took a macro-view on environmental accountability and corporate social responsibility. Led by Professor Oliver Li, the students got a chance to blend classroom knowledge with real, business context and learn more about the environmental issue by visiting real business operations in plantations and potential ‘hotspots’.
The student team visited Musim Mas Group’s Sorek estate in Pekanbaru.
An NUS Business School alumnus and donor, a former politician, a public servant, businessman, poet, photographer, artist, travel enthusiast, lyricist and a writer – Mr Peh Chin Hua is truly a man of many pursuits. His artistic and philanthropic passions converged beautifully at the recent launch of his new book, Wonders of Glaciers – Capturing the Beauty of a Moment.
Published by Shing Lee, the book documents Mr Peh’s travels to the frozen landscapes in Antarctica, The Arctic, Greenland and Iceland. Through his stunning photographs, readers are taken on an exquisite, visual journey into the frozen wonders of the world. His travels to these snowy landscapes have also inspired him to write poems which were turned into lyrics of songs played during the event.
