Following a S$180 million modernisation programme of the Centre, our new design is inherently sustainable and environmentally friendly. This is supported by an intelligent building management system that allows us to monitor all aspects of our daily operations and proactively optimise the running of the Centre.

Results can be observed in three key areas:

1.       Energy and Water Conservation
2. Minimising Waste Production and Maximising Recycling
3. Proactive Optimisation of Resources

 

1. Energy and 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. In addition, these modern tools minimise latent heat generation to further reduce our 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).

 

2. Minimising Waste Production and Maximising Recycling

Our processes and procedures have been engineered to minimise the production of physical waste. This is particularly important for our kitchens where we use a combination of techniques to keep food wastage to a minimum. For example, our kitchens operate on a just-in-time basis and we are able to monitor consumption and adjust our serving pace to match actual consumption during events.

Our integrated In-Centre Digital Screens significantly reduces the need for physical signage production such as room signage, directional signage and promotional banners.

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.

 

3. Proactive Optimisation of Resources

Suntec Singapore has over 200 cameras and sensors throughout our venue that constantly measure the state of our building and communicate with our intelligent building management system. 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.

Key Facts and 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 HDB flats for a year

·       All power points have local fuses to prevent electrical trips

·       All escalators are on power saving mode

·       Our toilets are installed with water saving devices for flushes
