Over the past few years Siloso Beach Resort (SBR) has been using its facilities as a showcase and test-bed of environmentally friendly technologies and practices. Our Eco Tour ProgrammeTM which was implemented a few years ago has been very successful and has attracted numerous stakeholders to visit our resort for the purpose of learning more about sustainable practices and technologies. Over the last 2-3 years more than 5000 people from key groups as diverse as universities, schools, government bodies, corporate senior executives (SME’s & MNC’s) and individual investors have attended these tours. The tours are increasingly becoming popular internationally as well.

The Program

The Eco Journey has 7 major “stations” or areas of interest all around the resort.

– Villa Wing – This area aims to showcase blending leisure with nature, with trees even incorporated into the design of buildings.

What to expect: 

a) Sustainable management and leadership:Since before the construction of the resort, it was decided that SBR would become an eco-resort. Strong planning and ongoing dedication has been put into the management of this resort.

b) Sustainable construction techniques: very specific and often unique and innovative construction techniques have been used throughout the resort in order to minimize the disturbance to the surrounding environment,  maximize the use of natural light and ventilation and reduce wastage at all levels. The resort is also home to unique features  such as one of Singapore’s longest self sustained rooftop gardens.

c) Integrated energy, water and waste management: from our unique water treatment and retention systems, the use of state of the art energy efficient technologies to our close loop food waste management; SBR  has become over the years very efficient at reducing its environmental impacts at all levels.

d) CSR: In addition to strong environmental and sustainability practices, SBR has been very active in supporting a range of social causes whether on its facilities or outside.

e) Cleantech test-bed and showcase: SBR has started an ambitious plan to use its facilities as a hub display of innovative new sustainable technologies. For this  we are collaborating with various public and private sector organisations  to test-bed various products.
