Singapore shopping centre Raffles City has launched a series of sustainability programs, educational content, and recycling workshops, to encourage shoppers, tenants, and hotel guests to adopt a greener lifestyle.
The program, called Project Green, is launched with a sustainability-focused showcase at Raffles City’s Level 3 atrium space which will run until September 25.
“By providing our retailers, office tenants, and hotels a suitable platform via Project Green to expand on their green offerings, Raffles City aspires to make a bigger positive impact on the environment and make sustainable living a part of the daily lives of our shoppers and stakeholders,” said Steve Ng, GM at Raffles City Singapore.

Raffles City has also collaborated with like-minded tenants from the food and beverage, beauty, and fashion industries, including Nespresso, L’Occitane, and Furla, as well as local brands Ginlee and Little Match Girl, to highlight their sustainability journey and retailer initiatives.
As shoppers participate in this effort, Raffles City enters the Singapore Book of Records with the city state’s largest textile yarn installation, at the Sustainability Pledge Corner.

A new recycling hub in the centre’s Basement 2 lift lobby A allows people to drop off their e-waste, used plastic drink bottles, and aluminium drink cans. This zone also includes interactive educational displays, recycling vending machines, and recycling and e-waste bins.
The Green Corner also has a Bag Sharing Station, which encourages shoppers to leave unused paper bags for others to use.
