Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2018
EMBEDDING SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES IN SINGAPORE
To date, we’ve supported approx. 60 MSF of LEED-certified space at our clients’ facilities
French multinational company Schneider Electric planned to convert an existing nine- story, 20-year-old building into a new regional headquarters in Singapore, targeting a green and sustainable facility. To help realize this objective, our Project and Development Services team in Singapore helped transform the building’s office spaces, delivering an efficient electrical and system design, energy- efficient equipment and smart controls – all resulting in a significantly reduced carbon footprint. Schneider Electric employees moved to the new headquarters in time for its opening in March 2018.
HELPING CLIENTS GO GREEN
We work with leading standards, such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), as well as our own menu of proprietary green practices that we have developed based on our in-house experience and expertise, to help our clients get the most out of their buildings. These practices include: >> Making operational and energy efficiencies to achieve leading green building standards and certifications
>> Supporting planning and development of renewable energy installations
>> Performing environmental risk assessments and assisting in risk mitigation
As an added bonus, Schneider Electric’s new headquarters building was awarded the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Platinum Award, the first office building to be certified under the new BCA guidelines in Singapore.
>> Planning and implementing retrofits for energy and water efficiencies
>> Providing technology solutions to monitor and track resource consumption and identify opportunities for improvement
