Developing for success and sustainability
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.

Mapletree has always placed great emphasis on protecting our environment, and focused on implementing sustainability initiatives as part of our property development and management. Throughout the years, the Group rolled out numerous initiatives to improve the energy and water efficiency of its major commercial assets. Mapletree also adopts sustainable designs for its developments to reduce negative environmental impact and to ensure the health and safety of its buildings’ occupants, thereby improving building performance and tenant satisfaction. Sustainable design principles that Mapletree has employed include optimising site potential, minimising non-renewable energy consumption, use of environmentally friendly products, and continually optimising operational and maintenance practices. Mapletree recognises the key role that it must play in enhancing energy efficiency, in order to reduce the overall Greenhouse Gas emissions. 

These efforts have paid off as Mapletree’s building energy intensity for the four stabilised sites in Singapore, namely HarbourFront Centre, HarbourFront Towers One and Two, 20 Harbour Drive and Tanjong Pagar Distripark, have been on a downward trend over the past 10 years.

By 2030, we aim to reduce the landlord energy consumption for our stable assets by 30%, with reference to the energy consumption levels in FY09/10. 

Mapletree is committed to building and investing in properties with innovative and functional concepts. These include integrating sustainability into architectural design, building details, construction as well as maintenance activities. In Singapore, we continue to support the Building and Construction Authority’s (BCA) Green Building Masterplan to shape a safe, high quality, sustainable and friendly built environment. Over the years, the Group has obtained many Green Mark Awards by BCA and the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) certifications which demonstrate our best-in-class building strategies and practices. Eight of the Group’s properties have achieved the BCA Green Mark Platinum Awards – the highest accolade. This award is given by BCA in recognition of the buildings’ environmental impact and performance. In addition, seven of our properties have achieved LEED certifications.

Environmental Awareness
To encourage our employees to adopt green practices, we have an ongoing “Mapletree Goes Green” initiative in the Singapore offices. For example, employees are reminded to print on both sides of the paper and we phased out the use of bottled water. Mapletree continues to be a strong supporter of environment related events, such as Earth Day and Earth Hour. The Group also actively promotes innovative ways to upcycle materials. We recently partnered with the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) to create a pavilion and a bench made out of recycled balau wood. The balau wood planks were taken from the VivoCity Sky Park when it underwent refurbishment. Both the pavilion and bench are now located at Mapletree Business City II (MBC II).

Continued support for the Environment

Mapletree continued to partner BirdLife International and the Nature Society (Singapore), to organise the 38th Singapore Bird Race. The race, which aimed at raising awareness of threatened birds, saw a record turnout with almost 300 participants competing in the seven different categories.
