Creating a greener tomorrow
Keppel Land has entered into a partnership with BCA to embark on a three-year campaign to facilitate the collaboration between schools and corporate organisations for projects which promote sustainability in the built environment.
The BCA-Keppel Land Partnership was inked at the launch of Build-it-Green (BiG) Day Out 2016, a three-day public outreach event aimed to raise awareness and interest on green buildings and sustainable living habits among families with children.
Mr Ang Wee Gee, CEO of Keppel Land, said, “Keppel Land believes in actively engaging our stakeholders in our sustainability journey. We are delighted to partner BCA to engage educational institutions and corporate organisations to promote greater awareness of the importance of a green built environment. With the adoption of thoughtful innovations and green building technologies, we strive to build a more sustainable future for generations to come.”
