Our efforts in this area have been recognised by the Building and Construction Authority (“BCA”) and Workplace Safety and Health Council.
We believe in protecting the environment for the sake of our future generations. Through consultation and cooperation among our management, employees and stakeholders, we actively explore ways to minimise the impact of our activities on the environment.
