Singapore based Swire Pacific Offshore has been awarded the prestigious Eco-Office Label Certification

9 March 2011

Project Eco-Office is an initiative introduced and administered by the Singapore Environmental Council (SEC) that was launched on 5th June 2002 to mark World Environmental Day.  It seeks to:
 
  • To bring the environmental message to offices in Singapore by incorporating environmental practices into the daily lives of office workers
  • To inspire and educate management and non-management staff to do their part to preserve the environment
  • To ensure that the environmental alternatives are easy, convenient and cost-effective for office staff to implement
  • To promote the principles and practices of office environmental responsibility, through sharing of knowledge and experience
  • To provide an effective benchmarking tool to facilitate development of a continual improvement cycle for office 'greening'
  • To identify areas of environmental initiative in greatest need of improvement
Independent auditors inspected SPO's offices on its two floors of the Concourse building plus the Swire Marine Training Centre in Loyang, to confirm that SPO conduct their business activities in an environmentally friendly manner.  The Singapore Environment Council confirmed that SPO had obtained the Eco Office Label covering the period 2010 - 2012, and this was presented to the company at a ceremony on Wednesday 16th February 2011.  In the 5 years that the certification scheme has been running only 72 organisations in Singapore have achieved this esteemed award.
