A green venue is a building designed to promote sustainability and operates with an active engagement in the 3Rs of reducing, reusing and recycling.
Due to energy and water efficiencies, green venues enjoy savings in operational costs, which may then be passed on to event organisers. For example, by converting to energy-saving lighting in the back of house and guest rooms, Intercontinental Hotel has made energy savings of approximately 80%1.
Apart from reduced resource consumption, the extensive greenery and healthy indoor environment of a green venue can also provide a greater sense of wellbeing to your delegates.
The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) in Singapore awards green venues with a Green Mark for meeting the following criteria:
- Energy efficiency
- Water efficiency
- Environmental protection
- Indoor environmental quality
- Other green features and innovation
It’s easy to get around in Singapore. All you need is the EZ-link (a stored-value card) and you can travel on all trains and buses in the city by tapping the card when you get on and off.
