We embrace sustainable best practices and work towards a carbon neutral Mandai by 2025.
Our sustainability roadmap is guided by four pillars:
- Resource Optimatisation
- Biodiversity Protection
- Integration with Surroundings
- Sustainability Advocacy
- Ongoing LED Conversions
- Sourcing for alternative AC equipment and devices
- Upgrading of aging equipment to high energy efficiency models
- Use of solar powered pumps for moats in our parks (exploration stage)
- Progressive Installation of solar panels, with target for 100% renewable energy by 2030
- Recycling of horticultural waste into mulch for planting bed and animal bedding. Some 30 back-of-house animal care areas for care are using the bedding.
- Facilitating download for digital park maps to replace some 149,000 printed park maps distributed each month.
- Black solider fly research on upcycling of food waste – to explore further enhancement and scale up research opportunity
- Establish waste management strategy: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Disposal (for new parks)
- Catered facilities for Horticulture waste recycling (for new parks)
- Provisions for Food Waste Composters (for new parks)

INTEGRATION WITH SURROUNDINGS
By championing sustainability best practices, we hope to inspire staff, partners and communities and empower them to make positive changes to the environment, which is key to protecting wildlife and ensuring the well-being of humanity.
We launched a three-year campaign `Fight The Deadliest Monster’ to generate awareness of the impact of plastic on our environment and encourage people to reduce usage of single-used plastic.
Following the positive response of this campaign, we will continue our journey with Fighting Deforestation, starting October 2021.
