With our unique position within the building and construction industry, SGBC can provide relevant resources to help organisations and individuals to build green.

Singapore has an ambition to reduce its carbon emissions and become net zero as soon as is viable. Making this happen will require lots of innovative technical approaches, but we can also make a massive change by getting people more involved in sustainability in buildings.

The Sustainability in Singapore (SiS) behaviour change programme seeks to impart skills to Green Ambassadors to bring about behavioural change in building users to act more sustainably. It is curated by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC), together with Global Action Plan (GAP), an environmental behaviour change charity organisation.

The complimentary SiS programme is typically delivered by a group of 3 to 5 individuals from an organisation within the same premises to achieve sustainability outcomes such as energy savings and general well-being. Individuals do not need any prior technical knowledge as they would be given training via virtual workshops, livestream sessions and meetings. Upon the completion of their training, these Green Ambassadors would then be equipped with the skills and capabilities to design their own sustainability campaign and act as influencers to engage their fellow colleagues, peers and other building occupants to participate and drive behavioural change to achieve their sustainability goals. They will also be trained to measure and report the impact of their respective campaigns (such as in energy savings, improvement in behaviour or well-being) through automated templates on the SiS platform.
