Environmental Best Practice at


SBR
Environmental and social initiatives focus on:

Preserving the Environment


Minimising Carbon Footprint
Ecologically Conscious Dining
Use Water Wisely
Energy Efficiency
Corporate Social Responsibility

Conservation at Siloso Beach


Resort
Unconventional construction techniques were used
to build over 200 hotel rooms while preserving over
200 fully grown trees and planting 450 trees post
construction
At the resort, the trees are literally integrated with
the building structure
Maximization of natural lighting through an open
concept, which also allows freedom in movement of
birds and insects through the resort premises
Conceptualized in 2003 with
the flora and fauna, Siloso
preserved all natural habitats
in its surrounding area

Eco-Friendly Mosquito Control


Numerous self sustained ponds have been implemented
throughout the resort. In addition to providing habitats
for a
diversity of species,
these ponds are
also growing
grounds for fish
that eat mosquito
larvae, as well as
dragonflies, which
effectively serve as
a natural mosquito
control agent.

Carbon Footprint at Siloso Beach


Resort
Open design concept saves energy
SBR has the largest self maintained roof top garden in
Singapore, which creates a cooling effect in the whole
building
The rooftop garden needs no watering as a plastic layer beneath the
soil traps water that feeds tree roots

Third generation heat-exchange chiller system, increasing


its energy efficiency
Below the resort lies a natural spring which naturally flows
up. As such, SBR carbon footprint through water energy use
is very low

In 2013 Siloso teamed up with


carbon offset specialist company
Nexus Carbon for Development

Organic Dining at Siloso Beach


Resort
Food waste (composting system) is used to grow
lettuces, herbs and organic vegetables on the roof top
garden
Part of the produce from the garden is served at the resorts
restaurant
Food is first sourced from local and nearby countries

A special machine uses bacteria to convert unused


food into fertilized water
Meals and events are well planned to minimize food
wastage
The beachfront caf is not serving any meat from
endangered species like shark fins, blue fin tuna, and
tiger shrimps.

Water Management at Siloso


Beach Resort
Natural Spring Water Landscape Pool (95m)
In conserving precious water, the source is collected
from a natural underground spring water reservoir.
Instead of using harsh chemicals, they sanitized the
pools with perfectly safe ionized salt, healthier for both
guests and the environment.

Auto-cut-off for public taps, optional towel and


linen program for guests
Installed are water-efficient showers warmed by
waste heat from the air-conditioning system

Energy Efficiency at Siloso Beach


Resort
A multitude of practices and energy saving
technologies are used throughout the resort to
reduce energy consumption:
Third generation heat exchange system
Balanced wave technology
Energy efficient lighting and electrical appliances

Saving energy through passive design


Open air corridors
One of the largest insulating roof top gardens in Singapore

Corporate Sustainability at SBR


At SBR we are convinced that corporate sustainability is
the only way forward and we will continue to our journey
towards continuous improvement in this direction.
We believe that a single small business like ourselves can
play a role by not just adopting such practices to our own
business but, in our opinion even more importantly, to
remain active in sharing these practices by outreaching to
society and possibly inspiring many others to adopt a
similar development path.
Mr Kelvin Ng, Managing Director, Siloso Beach Resort
