Conserving the Environment

As a leading real estate developer, Mapletree has always been conscientious in operating our assets with a strong focus on environmental sustainability. Since 2008, we have implemented initiatives to improve the energy efficiency in our major commercial assets in Singapore. Both Mapletree Business City (MBC) I and HarbourFront Centre were listed in the Top 10 Performing Commercial Buildings of the Building and Construction Authority (BCA)'s Building Benchmarking Reports in 2014 and 2015. With the various initiatives undertaken since 2008, the commercial assets4 that are currently held by Mapletree in Singapore have reached stable and optimal operational efficiency.

We adopt sustainable designs for our developments to reduce negative impact on the environment, and to ensure the health and safety of the buildings’ occupants, thereby improving building performance. Sustainable design principles include optimising site potential, minimising non-renewable energy consumption, use of environmentally friendly products, conservation of water, and continually optimising operational and maintenance practices. 

Six of the Group’s properties in Singapore have been awarded the BCA Green Mark Platinum Awards – the highest accolade. This award is given by BCA in recognition of the buildings’ environmental impact and performance. We aim to retain the BCA Green Mark certification for all our properties that are currently awarded the Green Mark certification.
In addition, nine of Mapletree’s projects in Asia have also achieved the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) certifications, an internationally well-regarded green building certification programme that recognises best-in-class building strategies and practices.
