Corporate Social Responsiblity
Only through giving back to the society, we can establish a socially responsible corporate culture that paves the way for long-term development of the enterprise, the society, the environment and the economy as a whole.
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.
Sakae Foundation is a charitable non-profit organisation that we established in 2011 to provide support to various charities, communities and causes.
At Sakae, we have always believed in serving and giving from the heart. In the same spirit, helping the disadvantaged in the community is a cause that is deeply rooted in our organisation. We have inculcated a culture of sharing and giving through one of our core values – Compassion to All. We have been focusing on helping the elderly and intellectually disabled youths, and have been doing so through our adopted beneficiaries; MINDS or Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore, Radin Mas Senior Citizens’ Home, Cannosian School, Fernvale Gardens School and Community Chest.
Through several initiatives such as the volunteering of our time to help out at our beneficiaries’ premises, monetary donations, as well as campaigns to raise donations of food; we hope to be able to touch the lives of the less fortunate. This feeling of satisfaction through benevolence has been a highly gratifying reward for us, and we hope to continue rendering the same assistance in the future and to continue being socially responsible corporate citizen.
