IMPROVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Sustainability is a collective effort. At PacificLight, our four main sustainability drivers form the ethos of why we do what we do – building and creating a future world to live in. They serve as a blueprint for our sustained growth and value creation. We adopt sustainable practices that create a positive impact on our society, the environment and the economy.
PacificLight ensures that sustainability is incorporated in all aspects of our business, from the adoption of innovative technologies and practices to process improvements in our daily business operations. Through implementing the best energy efficiency practices and minimizing our carbon footprint, being clean and green in our daily operations is very much a way of life.
PacificLight is a leader in energy efficiency. In addition to the S$1.2billion we have invested in building our power plant, we spent an additional S$5 million to further improve efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint. Through these efforts, we have saved more than 8MW in energy – enough to power over 10,000 households. This has also led to a 1.5% reduction in carbon emissions, equivalent to taking 15,000 cars off the road.
We constantly look to further conserve energy and resources as every step helps us achieve a more energy efficient future. We also help our customers maximise their energy efficiency.
Our technologically advanced facility is one of the most efficient power plants currently operating in Singapore and the only power plant to be certified as a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Our Health and Safety Management systems ensure we create and maintain a safe environment for our employees, customers and contractors. We maintain a robust safety culture through teamwork, clear and constant communication, education and training.
Our Codes of Conduct govern the safety of our suppliers, contractors and partners working within our facilities. We are accredited with international accredited British Standard OHASAS 18001:2007, in addition to the Singapore Standard 506 Part 1: 2009, which independently endorses that our occupational health and safety management systems meet world class standards.
