Sustainability & Environmental Obligations

Suntec Singapore’s design is inherently sustainable and environmentally friendly. The Centre’s Intelligent Building Management System (IBMS) monitors and proactively optimises operations. 

Key Facts & Figures

Here are some key facts & figures:

  • We collect and recycle almost 8,000 litres of cooking oil per year into biodiesel fuel.
  • Induction cooking is the most energy-efficient way of cooking, nearly 20% more efficient than any other electric cooktop and twice as efficient as cooking with gas.
  • Our LED lights are 80% more energy-efficient than traditional halogen lights. This represents savings of 1.46 million kWh annually, which is equivalent to powering 470 apartments for a year.
  • Our new chiller plant is 40% more efficient, which represents estimated energy savings of 18.3 million kWh per year.

Energy & Water Conservation

Suntec Singapore’s energy conservation efforts focus on climate control, lighting and cooking by using the latest energy-efficient technology such as LED lighting, induction cookers, and electronic ovens. These modern tools minimise latent heat generation to further reduce the Centre’s air-conditioning requirements.  All water fittings in the Centre are certified as “Excellent” and “Very Good” in accordance with Singapore’s Public Utility Board Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme (PUB WELS).

Minimising Waste Production & Maximising Recycling

Suntec Singapore’s processes and procedures have been engineered to minimise the production of food waste. Such examples can be seen in F&B production, where the kitchen operates on a just-in-time basis, allowing the Centre to monitor consumption and adjust the serving pace to match the needs of events.

Our integrated In-Centre Digital Screens support event organisers by significantly reducing the need for physical signage production such as posters, directional boards and promotional banners.

Similarly, our free high-speed, high-density WiFi network, which allows up to 8,000 devices to stay online from anywhere in the Centre, reduces the need for delegates and organisers to print physical documents since these can all be accessed or shared in real-time over our network.

All waste is scrupulously collected, separated and recycled. This includes our cooking oil, of which we recycle nearly 8,000 litres annually into biodiesel fuel.

Proactive Optimisation of Resources

Suntec Singapore has over 200 cameras and sensors throughout our Centre that constantly measure the state of our building and communicate with our Intelligent Building Management System (IBMS). This allows us to remotely adjust lighting, air-conditioning and other settings to optimise our environment for any activities taking place in our Centre while reducing inefficiencies and wasteful practices. For example, we are able to monitor and ensure that rooms are at an optimal temperature during events and lights are switched off in spaces when events have ended.

BCA Green Mark Scheme

Suntec Singapore is certified BCA Green Mark (Gold). 

The BCA Green Mark Scheme was launched in January 2005 as an initiative to drive Singapore's construction industry towards more environment-friendly buildings. It is intended to promote sustainability in the built environment and raise environmental awareness among developers, designers and builders when they start project conceptualisation and design, as well as during construction.
