    SGBC Launches Digital Campaign to Show Homeowners that Green Means Go

    Singapore, 21 October 2021 - The Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC) is showing homeowners, homebuyers and the wider public that Green Means Go through a new digital outreach campaign about green homes and sustainability.

    Anchored on an interactive websiite at greenbuildings.sg, the campaign will feature several key mechanics to raise awareness and drive engagement, beginning with the Greenest Home Town Challenge. Running from October 2021 to January 2022, the Challenge invites homeowners to post photos of their own green home efforts onto a map of Singapore. Entries can be as simple as taking photos of house plants or as extensive as showcasing a full-fledged smart home system. Homeowners with the most-liked photos stand to win prizes such as shopping vouchers and home appliances, and Singapore’s Greenest Home Town will be unveiled in January 2022

    Running from October 2021 to March 2022, the Green Means Go campaign will outline the role of green buildings in environmental sustainability, showcase the benefits to human health and wellbeing as well as empower homeowners to build green into their homes. The action-oriented thematic resonates well with key green building outcomes, which are captured as the campaign’s main pillars of Go Natural, Go Healthy, Go Smart. With the increasing emphasis on the effects of climate change, green buildings are in a prime position to not just accelerate decarbonisation efforts but also provide healthier, more equitable spaces for everyone, everywhere.
