Redefining Sustainability in the Built Environment

Organised in collaboration with REDAS

introduction to REDEFINING SUSTAINABILITY IN THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT

With the launch of Green Plan 2030, Singapore has been ramping up the focus on research and development plan for the next five years to chart our nation’s research, innovation and enterprise development landscape. Urban Solutions and Sustainability (USS) is one key research domain supporting our efforts to emerge stronger in a post-pandemic world.

With rapid urbanisation, building faster, better and to a higher and more green standard is a necessity for companies. Therefore, advanced construction, resilient infrastructure, new spaces and greater sustainability play an important role in the built environment, in advancing the nation’s goals for 2030. There is no better time than now to transform your business towards sustainable development and growth!

Learn from our experts as they share their latest insights to assist your business in achieving your commitments to sustainable development goals. To view the webinar, fill up the form now!

PROGRAMME AGENDA

 

  • Energy Efficiency Management & Carbon Verification for Facilities

    By: Ms. Zainab Ibrahim, Senior Auditor, TÜV SÜD

    Gain insights on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) verification activity and timelines including the GHG criteria, objectives, planning, conducting and reporting, through sharing of a case study.

  • Carbon Credits in Net-zero Journey

    By: Mr. Panchaksharam Thirumalavan, Senior Manager, Sustainability Building Engineering Solutions, C&W Services

    The world emits more than 35 billion tonnes of CO2 on a yearly basis to the atmosphere. Building and construction shares nearly 38% of total carbon emissions in the world, whereas 28% by operation & 11% embodied carbon.  To avoid the worst impact of climate change, we need to bring down that to zero in the next 30 years. It seems to be impossible, but achievable by implementing rigorous mitigation measures to reduce global emissions. 

    Race towards net-zero, many organizations are already set ambitious goals, with many aiming to go "net zero" within the next 10 or 20 years and working towards them. However, beyond a certain level the emission reduction strategies may not help organizations to reach their net-zero goal. Carbon credit is one of the solutions to offset their residual emissions. Carbon Credits are generated by specific projects that avoid, reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere, and are verified and validated according to a set of independent standards.

    In this session, you will learn about carbon credits and how to obtain them, and how carbon credits can help you to achieve net-zero in short-term.                                                                                                      

  • Achieve Sustainability and Increase Building Value through Digital Building Lifecycle Management Services

    By: Mr. Tobias Schmidt, Global Manager of Digital Lifecycle Solutions, TÜV SÜD

    Learn how ISO 19650, or Information Management with Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Common Data Environment (CDE) helps building owners as well as contractors to achieve and implement Economic and Social Responsibility related  Sustainability, Building Performance and Safety measures to significantly enhance the building value. 

  • CO2-Neutral Lifecycle Approach for Buildings (TBC)

    By: Mrs. Alexandra Massuthe, COO/Head Of Operations, TÜV SÜD

    More details to be updated soon.

  • Green Concrete Solution

    By: Mr. Lim Koon Min, Deputy Director, Sustainability and Special Projects, Pan-United

    Construction is undergoing a paradigm shift, with climate change, sustainability, low-carbon and zero-emissions becoming buzzwords of the day. We understand how critical it is that the foundations we are setting should build up to a greater national and global impact. We will be sharing Pan-United's array of low-carbon footprint solutions and how we utilised CO2 to reduce embodied carbon.  

There will be a short Q&A session after each presentation.
