We will do our part to combat climate change, and are committed to improving resource efficiency and reducing our environmental impact.
Keppel's real estate division has in place a comprehensive suite of measures to build sustainable, low-carbon urban developments. We support the fight against plastic pollution and are committed to avoiding single-use plastics in our Singapore and overseas operations, where possible.
Keppel's real estate division is committed to minimising its environmental impact and is focused on sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources. We have implemented the Integrated Management System which combines the ISO 9001 quality management system, the ISO 14001 environmental management system and the ISO 45001 occupational health and safety management system.
Keppel's real estate division is committed to reducing its absolute Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 100%, and reducing Scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services by 20% per square metre, both by 2030 from a 2020 base year. We are the first in Asia’s real estate sector to set a near-term 100% reduction science-based target for Scope 1 and 2 emissions in line with the 1.5°C trajectory. We also aim to increase the amount of green materials used to 50% by 2030, and we have set high BCA Green Mark targets for our developments.
Keppel's real estate division organises various environmental initiatives, including the ‘R.I.S.E to the Challenge’ outreach programme, to promote sustainability and climate change awareness among staff, tenants and the general public. This includes an e-book for students on a wide range of issues related to rising sea levels, including its contributing factors, consequences, mitigating actions and adaptation measures.

SPECIAL FEATURE: FOCUSING ON SUSTAINABLE ENERGY AND URBANISATION SOLUTIONS
On 25 February 2022, The Keppel Group and Sovico Group, through their respective subsidiaries, signed two Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) to collaborate to explore the development and roll-out of energy and environmental solutions, as well as identify, develop, operate and manage smart and sustainable projects in Vietnam’s key gateway cities (Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi). This collaboration also emphasised Keppel's relentless effort to achieve Vision 2030, where we seek to provide solutions for sustainable urbanisation, including energy and environmental solutions, as well as masterplanning and the development of smart and sustainable cities.
