CSR & Sustainability

Green Innovations


For more than a decade, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to developing and managing greener properties, influencing our stakeholders, and ensuring eco-friendly practices are applied across all aspects of our business.

Testament to the importance we place on the environment, CDL currently invests 2% to 5% of the construction cost of a development on green design and features, mitigating the environmental impacts of our buildings. Since 2011, we have set a minimum target for all our new developments to be certified BCA Green Mark GoldPLUS, two levels above the mandatory Green Mark requirement, complementing BCA’s target of greening at least 80% of Singapore’s building stock by 2030.

Our promise to deliver quality green homes and offices was re-affirmed as CDL was awarded the Quality Excellence Award - Quality Champion (Platinum) by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) in 2015, earning us the distinction of being the only developer to have received this highest honour for three consecutive years. As at end 2015, CDL has over 80 BCA Green Mark developments – the most amongst local developers in Singapore.

Through the implementation of green innovations into CDL properties, we also strive to develop the industry's expertise and capabilities in adopting sustainable solutions for our built environment.

In April 2014, CDL’s Tree House Condominium entered the Guinness Book of World Records for the World’s Largest Vertical Garden. Following that in 2015, CDL broke new ground by becoming the first Asian developer to adopt Prefabricated, Pre-finished, Volumetric Construction (PPVC) for The Brownstone Executive Condominium. With 638 apartment units, it is likely the world’s largest PPVC application for a residential development, driving construction productivity gains of close to 40% and savings of close to 55,000 man-days.
