Community & Sustainability
Across our businesses and subsidiary companies, we are committed to doing what is right to ensure there is a future for our next generations. We see ourselves as part of the wider ecosystem of responsible businesses committed to the global sustainability cause. Our sustainability initiatives focus on two key aspects: Protecting the environment and Empowering communities.
Communities: Giving back
Our community is where we thrive. Reciprocally, we drive positive change in our communities through initiatives such as corporate giving and support to welfare organisations. With the community’s well-being as a focus beyond our core mission, we support a variety of charities and a spectrum of meaningful events and causes for the environment and vulnerable communities.
Communities: Supporting local businesses and advocating entrepreneurship
Our community is where we prosper. We advocate entrepreneurship and support local businesses to grow. We design and specially curate 'Start-Up Zones' and platforms for entrepreneurship-centric competitions at our events, as well as engage local companies' services for various aspects of our businesses, e.g. audio-visual, venue security, food catering, cleaning and logistics. The Culinary team at our managed MICE venue Singapore EXPO & MAX Atria adopt a farm-to-table approach, working alongside farms with sustainable practices to source for the freshest ingredients.
Communities: Mentorship and education
Our community is where we flourish. We have our sights set on grooming tomorrow’s talents to shape the future of the MICE industry. We place strong emphasis on training and developing our own people, sharing experiences with and imparting knowledge and expertise to the greater MICE communities, as well as providing training opportunities to students via holistic internship and attachment programmes.
Environment: Observing highest operational standards
A safe and hygiene environment safeguards our future. We believe in operating at highest possible standards and have attained local and international certifications in managing the Singapore EXPO Convention and Exhibition Centre and its convention wing, MAX Atria. We also celebrate outstanding achievements in environmentally sustainable building practices and use of innovative green features. Our employees are accredited with professional certifications to ensure environmental sustainability practices are well complied with, and operational efficiencies achieved.
Environment: Optimising resources and reducing carbon footprint
A resource-rich environment sustains our future. We strive to optimise the use of resources through creating value-adding infrastructure, shared spaces and features that can be reused or deployed across events, all to help reduce carbon emissions from excessive construction and transportation. We also put in place energy-saving and effective waste management initiatives to reduce levels of waste and pollution to the environment.
