A total of 376 projects, including 16 overseas, have been awarded with the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Award, this year.

 

The upward trend of building owners going for higher tier Green Mark Certifications (Green Mark Platinum and above) is indicative of the industry’s awareness of the positive impact of green buildings and recognising them as key in our efforts to fight climate change. For example, the number of Non-Residential Building projects obtaining higher tier Green Mark certification (Green Mark Platinum and above) has doubled to 149 over the past five years. Major Singapore developers and SGBC Founding Members CapitaLand, City Developments Limited (CDL) and Keppel Land have also been setting targets for reducing energy use and carbon footprint in their building portfolios.

Benefits of making investments for higher Energy Efficiency (EE)

EE measures adopted have been shown to reap net positive savings throughout the building lifecycle, with energy savings outweighing the upfront investment cost. An independent review of BCA’s Green Mark scheme carried out in 2019 assessed the total lifecycle cost across both residential and non-residential buildings. The study affirms that Green Mark certified buildings would be able to reap net positive savings throughout its lifecycle and the energy savings outweigh the upfront investment cost.

Green Mark Champion Award

CapitaLand Group has clinched the Green Mark Platinum Champion Award this year, setting a high standard among the Green Mark Champion winners. The award recognises developers who demonstrate strong commitment towards corporate social responsibility and have achieved a substantial number of Green Mark Gold buildings or higher.  The real estate group has also achieved BCA’s Green Mark Platinum SLEB certification for LogisTech, the first logistics building in Singapore to achieve this recognition. The four-storey building underwent a major upgrade to achieve higher energy efficiency standards. CapitaLand Group has separately accomplished the installation of 21,000 solar panels atop LogisTech and five other CapitaLand industrial properties in Singapore. It will enable CapitaLand’s corporate offices in three locations in Singapore to be 100% powered by renewable energy by end 2020 through Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) from the clean energy generated. As such, CapitaLand will reduce over 700 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year, equivalent to emissions generated annually from 400 four-room HDB flats’ electricity consumption. 

Other winners of the Green Mark Champion Award are: National Environment Agency (NEA), Singapore Police Force (SPF), UOL Group Limited and GuocoLand, who have shown their strong commitment to shaping a sustainable built environment.

BCA-HPB Green Mark for Healthier Workplaces

Strengthening the good linkage between energy efficiency, resource efficiency and healthier interior spaces, BCA collaborated with Health Promotion Board (HPB) to develop the BCA-HPB Green Mark for Healthier Workplaces (GM HW) scheme in 2018. Placing occupants’ health, well-being and comfort at the forefront of office design and daily operations, GM HW seeks to create a supportive environment through the establishment of workplace health structures, policies and programmes.

Bringing BCA Green Mark overseas

The BCA Green Mark has received strong acceptance internationally since it was launched 15 years ago. To date, some 305 projects across 16 countries have attained the Green Mark certification. Singapore-based consultants such as SGBC Member GreenA Consultants (a SGBC-certified environment sustainability consultancy firm) is exporting their expertise overseas to meet the strong demand for green buildings in other cities. GreenA is currently involved in 4 SLEB projects and has participated in more than 15 overseas Green Mark projects. Some of the firm’s notable international projects include New Bugesera International Airport (Rwanda) and Galleries Lafayette Shanghai (China).

Updates on the Singapore Green Building Masterplan

Since the beginning of 2020, BCA and the SGBC together with industry stakeholders have formed the Singapore Green Building Masterplan (SGBMP) Working Committee to collectively set a shared vision and aspirations for the next phase in Singapore’s green building journey. A vital part of the work has been to engage a wider group of stakeholders, beyond the traditional Built Environment stakeholders, in the co-creation process. This includes tenants and youth who represent the ultimate beneficiaries of a greener Built Environment as envisaged in the SGBMP. The SGBMP Working Committee will continue to finetune the initiatives and proposed policy levers towards the SGBMP launch to push boundaries in building performance to mitigate climate change.
