Energy, Water and Waste Reduction Efforts – The Manager In October 2018, the Manager’s office moved to a new Singapore location, 8 Cross Street. To reduce waste, the carpet that was replaced was sent to be recycled into new carpets. Lights and air conditioners are also turned off automatically at preset timing every night and over the 1 2016 data is based on three properties; 2017 and 2018 data are based on five properties. 2 2016 data is based on three properties; 2017 and 2018 data are based on four properties. 3 Data has not been normalised to account for year-on-year weather fluctuations. Energy intensity increased due to weather related consumption increases in 2018. 4 Water consumption increased due to a mechanical failure of a water valve which was subsequently repaired, as well as weather related. Exchange was not included in the water consumption due to inaccurate meter readings in 2018.

Indoor plants are placed in MUST’s office as they bring about many benefits to the office such as improving air quality by removing harmful pollutants, stabilising humidity, reducing noise levels and they are known to increase productivity. Recycling activities for coffee capsules, plastic and cans were introduced since 2017 and staff are encouraged to print only when necessary, in double-sided on Forest Stewardship Certified (FSC) paper.
