As a developer of modern business spaces, Mapletree is mindful to incorporate infrastructure that reduce and mitigate environmental impact.
MBC was designed to meet the most stringent green standards and it has received the highest level Green Mark certification by the Singapore BCA. The award was renewed in 2013.
A key feature of MBC’s environmental sustainability is its district cooling plant, which is the world’s most efficient plant in the tropics*. Waste heat is channeled to heat a swimming pool for its gym and provide hot water for F&B and retail outlets.
The same plant will further extend to MBC II and the combined MBC development will generate annual energy savings of 23.6 million kWh, equivalent to meeting the electricity needs of almost 4,200* Singapore households in a year.
The integrated business hub will also feature 48 eco-friendly parking lots and 194 bicycle lots, to encourage users towards more environmentally-friendly modes of commuting.
*Calculation: 23,600,000kWh / 5,628kWh = 4,193 and accurate as of 2013
