As one of Asia’s premier property companies, Keppel Land believes in building developments that are in harmony with the natural environment. In fact, after adopting six Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2016, further steps have been taken since to achieve greater reduction in waste, water and energy. When it comes to observing internationally recognised environmental guidelines, the company takes exceptional pride to ensure that it not only complies but exceeds all regulatory requirements.
Here’s a look at some of our achievements.
Accolades for environmentally green buildings
To date, Keppel Land has obtained a total of 75 Green Mark Awards for its properties in Singapore, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines and India, including 13 Platinum Awards. Given out by the Singapore’s Building & Construction Authority (BCA), these awards recognise efforts for the effective use of energy, environmental protection, sustainable development, and water conservation. The total estimated reduction in energy consumption from all of the company’s Green Mark-awarded projects when they are fully completed will be over 160 million kWh per annum – enough to power more than 28,000 homes in Singapore for a year, and roughly $32 million in cost savings per year. That’s on top of water savings of about 2 million cubic metres a year, and an annual carbon emission reduction of almost 70,000 tonnes. In 2017 alone, Keppel Land won 12 accolades at the BCA Awards, including the coveted BCA Quality Champion (Gold) Award for developers.
