Keppel Bay Tower 1

The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has certified Keppel Bay Tower, owned and operated by Keppel Land Limited (Keppel Land), as a Green Mark Platinum (Zero Energy) building. It is the first commercial building in Singapore to achieve this accolade. 

A Green Mark Platinum (Zero Energy) building must, in addition to achieving a low energy use index (EUI) of less than 115 kWh/m2 per year, also have all of its energy consumption, including plug load, supplied from renewable sources, both on-site and off-site.

Mr Tan Swee Yiow, CEO of Keppel Land, said, “In line with Keppel’s Vision 2030, Keppel Land places sustainability at the heart of our strategy and operations. We are committed to doing our part in greening the built environment and are delighted by BCA’s recognition of Keppel Bay Tower as the first Green Mark Platinum (Zero Energy) commercial building in Singapore, which is an important affirmation of our efforts to leverage technological innovations to enhance the environmental performance of our buildings. We hope that this will pave the way for more zero energy commercial buildings in the years to come, and look forward to further pushing the envelope of environmental sustainability in Singapore and beyond.”

Commenting on the achievement, Mr Kelvin Wong, CEO of BCA, said, “This is a significant milestone in our green building journey and I applaud Keppel Land’s commitment and efforts in this outstanding accomplishment. It also demonstrates how research and innovation can make zero energy, high rise commercial buildings a reality. I believe this is just the first of many more to come and I look forward to upcoming contributions from across the Built Environment value chain to realise our collective goal of a greener and more sustainable Singapore.”
