About The Hinrich Foundation and NUS Business School

The Hinrich Foundation is a philanthropic organization focused on promoting sustainable global trade. We are a unique, independent and authoritative Asia-based voice on global trade.

Our work is grounded in the belief that sustainable global trade requires mutually acceptable terms and balanced economic, social and environmental outcomes.

We produce forward-looking policy research, as well as programs that educate and engage stakeholders on global trade issues and develop talent to advance trade activity.

Our aim is to influence and improve trade behaviors and outcomes, so that trade can create maximum benefits for all its participants and enhances geopolitical stability.

The Centre for Governance, Institutions and Organisations (CGIO) was established by the National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School in 2010. It aims to spearhead relevant and high-impact research on corporate governance (CG) and corporate sustainability (CS) issues that are pertinent to institutions, government bodies and businesses both in Singapore and Asia.

Its twin research focus on CG and CS issues have stood the test of time and are in fact even more relevant with the ongoing challenges and disruptive changes to businesses, trade models and operations.

CGIO conducts masterclasses and conferences on regional and global trends in global value chains and sustainability, board diversity, CG and CS. It also produces reports on Supply Chains and Sustainability, Corporate Governance and Corporate Sustainability such as the Singapore Governance and Transparency Index, ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard, Sustainability Reporting in Singapore and ASEAN.

CGIO’s research findings and insights are well sought after by policy makers, industry affiliates, corporates, organisations and media.
