Keppel Land is committed to caring for the environment wherever its properties may be found. We believe harmonising with and improving the environment to enhance the quality of life of the people who use our properties.
This credo guides the design and development of all our projects in Singapore and overseas.
Oases in the City
As one of the largest landlords in Raffles Place, Keppel Land has contributed to making Singapores Central Business District distinctive with eight prime office buildings.
Apart from providing state-of-the-art working environment, Keppel Land also consciously looks into creating green oases, where practicable, for environmental relief from concrete skyscrapers. Lush landscaping, interactive water features and roof gardens characterise some Keppel Land office buildings.
In the same vein, Keppel Land homes are nestled in luxuriant sanctuaries where often cars are parked in the basement, freeing the first level for greenery and carefree play.
Eco Efforts Overseas
With overseas developments, Keppel Land also makes efforts towards preserving the precious ecosystem. At Spring City Golf and Lake Resort in Kunming, China, steps taken to prevent pollution in the lake include setting up of the resorts own sewerage treatment plant, planned application of pesticide,chemicals and fertilizers, as well as having constant dialogue with local authorities on anti-pollution activities.
