CapitaLand Earth Hour 2019
More than 260 CapitaLand properties around the world will take part in WWF’s Earth Hour movement to #Connect2Earth in the month of March 2019. On 30 March 2019 night, we will switch off our façade lights and non-essential lighting throughout the night from 8.30 pm (local time).
Join CapitaLand’s Earth Hour Campaign 2019!
A whole slew of activities will be organised in March to encourage residents in our serviced residences as well as tenants and customers at our offices and malls, to lead a more sustainable lifestyle. We’ve got cycling and tree planting activities to promote a low carbon lifestyle, a green bazaar to encourage eco-friendly choices in Vietnam and coastal/river cleanups in the Philippines to raise awareness about marine pollution and how you can play an active role in keeping it clean. Look out for the PUB roadshows at our Singapore malls and office buildings and make a pledge to water conservation!
You too can do your part! 2019 is designated by Singapore as the Year Towards Zero Waste. Here are some quick and easy tips to reduce our waste footprint and lead a zero-waste lifestyle.
- Reduce Plastic Waste: Do you know that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish? Reduce single-use plastic and make a simple switch to reusable bags, cups and utensils.
- Reduce Electronic Waste: Do you know that by 2021, we will generate 52.2 million tonnes of e-waste? Use and maintain your electronic property to prolong its lifespan. For old electronics, recycle them at designated bins.
- Reduce Water Wastage: Do you know water scarcity affects more than 40% of the global population? Cut your shower time by 1 minute and save 9 litres of water.

On 22 March 2019, 29 CapitaLand staff volunteers and 10 children joined Ms Stella Cochrane, co-founder of Trash Hero Singapore for a coastal cleanup activity at Coney Island. From the beach cleanup, the volunteers learnt to minimise marine plastic pollution as well as the importance of preserving Singapore’s water resources.
Over 110 kg of trash was was collected over a 50 metre stretch along the beach in one hour, with single-use plastic making up most of the trash collected, including 114 plastic bottles and 80 pieces of styrofoam. Unique items collected include large plastic drum barrels, washing machine lid, motorcycle helmet, sepak takraw (rattan ball), Ken doll, etc.
