Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2018
Pioneers of the Green Mark Certification in Singapore
In Singapore, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) partnered with the Health Promotion Board (HPB) to develop a new Green Mark scheme focusing on the health and wellbeing of building occupants in green offices, auditing aspects such as sustainable design and management, as well as energy and resource management. The scheme is a culmination of extensive industry consultations and pilot testing on projects involving more than 150 building owners, landlords, facility managers, interior design firms, industry associations and other government agencies. Engaged at an early stage in the pilot program in 2018, C&W Services Singapore was among the very first organizations to achieve accreditation in early 2019 for the Chai Chee Office, receiving the BCA-HPB Green Mark for Healthier Workplaces Platinum Award.
WELL Certification at two of our own buildings Wellbeing also extends to the buildings in which we work. In 2018, two of our U.S. office locations, our Chicago global headquarters and our Atlanta office, achieved WELL Certification at the Silver level, awarded by the International WELL Building Institute TM . For several years, we have been supporting our clients as they work to achieve WELL Certification (see our section on Enhancing the way people live and work ), and we are delighted to have now completed our own first certifications, confirming to our employees that their wellbeing is equally important to us and our business.
WELL offers a framework for maximizing health and wellbeing through design, operations and Human Resources policies. Both our offices earned high scores for air and water quality, sit-stand workstations, low-sugar food options and more.
“To achieve WELL Silver Certification at our Chicago and Atlanta offices, our teams focused on enhancing employee health and wellbeing through the design, operations and HR policies. Employee satisfaction in these WELL-certified spaces has been high with appreciation for the improved air, water and light quality, ergonomic workstations, healthy food options and more. We look forward to achieving additional certifications in 2019.” Allison Kim, WELL Faculty, WELL AP, LEED AP, Fitwel Ambassador Vice President, Sustainability andWellness Services
