INVESTMENT IN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
Testament to our commitment to environmental conservation, CDL established a minimum target for all new developments to be certified BCA Green Mark GoldPLUS, two tiers beyond legislative requirements. To support this ambition, CDL typically invests 2% to 5% of a new development’s construction cost in green design and features.
CDL also supports various non-governmental and grassroots organisations that drive environmental conversation and sustainability within the wider community. Additionally, we support youth-led environmental groups in eco-outreach and education initiatives. Some organisations that we have supported in the past include the Singapore Environment Council and Nature Society (Singapore).
Since 2015, CDL has donated up to $100,000 every year to the North West Community Development Council’s “Power Up Scheme”. A three year programme, the scheme provides electricity bill rebate to low income households that have shown commitment towards reducing energy consumption.
