SGBC has lined up a series of insightful seminars, workshops and events that enable industry players to provide valuable knowledge sharing and updated information.
 

Financing Transformation Guide 2024

The Financing Transformation: A Guide to Green Building for Green Bonds and Green Loans publication was launched by an international alliance of world leading green building rating system organisations as the first global practical guide to facilitate the $35 trillion investment needed by 2030 to meet global energy transition goals.

The publication details how various building verification and certification standards can be used to comply with global classifications and bond frameworks, setting a trajectory for the global built environment to meet a sustainable 1.5°C climate threshold.

SGBC-OCBC Decarbonisation Challenge Banner

 

The Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC), in collaboration with OCBC, presents the SGBC-OCBC Built Environment Decarbonisation Challenge to unearth solutions towards a low-carbon future.

The Challenge aims to identify and support innovative technology solutions to decarbonise the built environment, in line with Singapore’s Green Plan 2030 to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

We call on our network of innovators and organisations to come forward with tenable building retrofit solutions, innovative approaches as well as advanced technology and materials to accelerate decarbonisation efforts, starting with OCBC’s commercial office buildings. From 6 December 2023 to 16 February 2024, companies are invited to submit proposals showcasing cutting-edge decarbonisation solutions. Proposed solutions should prioritise carbon abatement and energy efficiency while considering cost-effectiveness and practicality in terms of deployment and maintenance.

Shortlisted solutions will be piloted at OCBC's buildings, with the potential to scale up the solutions in all OCBC managed buildings or in other testbedding opportunities catalysed by SGBC.

OCBC

The Challenge
Buildings are responsible for 20 percent of Singapore’s carbon emissions, and are a central focus of Singapore's Green Plan as they offer a significant opportunity to reduce carbon emissions, enhance resilience to climate change, optimise resource use, and improve the overall quality of life for residents.

What can we do to accelerate the decarbonisation of our buildings? This Challenge call will focus on uncovering solutions that can reduce operational carbon emissions in buildings in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. Solutions should prioritise carbon abatement and energy efficiency as well as provide good value and practicality for deployment.

Who Can Participate?
The Challenge is open to startups and established companies passionate about built environment decarbonisation and sustainability.

By participating in the Challenge, get to:

  • Attest the decarbonisation potential, deployment readiness and commercial case of your solutions in a live environment.
  • Network with industry leaders, experts, and innovators in the fields of finance and sustainability.
  • Contribute to the global effort to combat climate change and create a sustainable future for generations to come.

Exemplary solutions will also get up to $80,000 in funding support to implement pilot projects in selected OCBC properties. Join the SGBC-OCBC Built Environment Decarbonisation Challenge and be part of the solution to reduce building carbon emissions for a more sustainable future.

The submission period for the Challenge has closed.

The Singapore Mechanical & Electrical Carbon Calculator (MECC) is an embodied carbon accounting tool designed for the Singapore building industry to estimate the embodied carbon emissions related to the mechanical and electrical service systems of a new development; emissions associated with their manufacturing, transportation, and operations over the building’s whole life cycle.

It is applicable during the design and at post-construction stages of a new development. It is intended for use by project developers, building consultants, estate managers and other environment sustainability stakeholders who are seeking to evaluate the carbon emissions related to the building service system design and operation, and identify potential emission hotspots for interventions.

Climate Change is the greatest threat to the natural environment and humanity. Atmospheric carbon has been rising annually to historical highs, leading to global increases in temperatures. The built environment sector has a crucial role to play in responding to the climate crisis and with a highly connected value chain, this presents an opportunity for the sector to address carbon holistically from a whole life perspective and to tackle both operational and embodied carbon in design, construction and operations.

The Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC) champions the decarbonisation of Singapore's built environment and has launched a series of programmes and activities to galvanise and support industry efforts. This includes the Singapore Built Environment Embodied Carbon Pledge as well as the Singapore Building Carbon Calculator, which was developed in collaboration with the Building and Construction Authority (BCA), JTC Corporation (JTC) and the Energy Studies Institute (ESI) at National University of Singapore (NUS).

The Embodied Carbon in Buildings Calculation Guide supports Singapore’s decarbonisation efforts by providing guidance on defining the scope and methodology for measuring and reporting the embodied carbon emissions of building and construction activities. It is particularly useful for understanding the upfront carbon of building and infrastructure projects, where upfront carbon is the emissions resulting from the materials production and construction phases of an asset’s lifecycle, before the building or infrastructure asset begins to be used. In contrast to other categories of emissions, these emissions have already been released into the atmosphere before the building is occupied or the infrastructure begins operation.

This free-to-use Guide is intended to serve as an informative resource to harmonise carbon emissions data collection efforts during the design and construction phases of projects, and to provide a standardised framework for the reporting of embodied carbon emissions. This will facilitate the aggregation of embodied carbon emissions information of Singapore’s buildings and construction activities, and allow for national averages and benchmarks to be determined.
