Ascott embarks on green movement
Singapore, April 24, 2012

ASCOTT has kick-started a global sustainability drive, Go Green @ Ascott, targeting 15 per cent savings in water and energy consumption across its offices and properties worldwide by 2015.


Tony Soh, chief corporate officer, Ascott and chairman of the company’s Green Committee, said: “Climate change is a real issue that is affecting how we live, work and play... we are taking proactive and meaningful steps to transform our business practices and promote sustainability among our staff, residents and business partners.”


Besides implementing green practices such as using sustainable building materials for construction of new properties, and increasing the usage of green products at its serviced residences, the serviced residence owner-operator is targeting international environmental certification for all properties by end-2012.


In addition, Ascott will actively promote water, energy and paper conservation, as well as waste reduction. The company will also organise a regular Ascott Earth Day, to be held every first Friday of the month across all properties.
