As part of our strong commitment to safeguard our environment, we are constantly exploring various Go Green facilities that will enhance our operations at our Sakae Building. By building on past years’ initiatives and efforts, we are continually looking at enhanced ways to improve our Go Green initiatives.
Our Central Kitchen is outfitted with state-of-the-art high technology equipment and appliances which produce less ambient heat and very low carbon emissions, while ensuring lower energy consumption levels. Our previously installed solar panel project, with 1400 solar panels for a 270 kilowatt-peak solar energy system, has been optimised and fully integrated. On an average day with low cloud cover, the solar panels are able to generate and retain 20% to 30% of our building’s energy consumption, which is in the long run a very substantial figure.
Lighting used in our Sakae Building was installed with motion-sensor devices to help cut own electricity usage, and we have also adopted the use of LED lighting in the stores for power saving and environment friendly purposes.
On top of that, we have a rainwater irrigation system installed at the water fountain feature in front of our Sakae Building for landscaping purposes. Our Go Green efforts will not stop here, and we will continue to explore and reinforce various ways to contribute to the sustainability of our community and environment.
