IMPACT reveals green efforts

IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center has revealed its various green efforts.

The organisation revealed its employee responsibility programme, which includes:

  • Reducing paper waste – all written materials are printed double-sided
  • Creating a shared drive to store all files, to which employees in the network have access
  • Recycling business badges to HR department upon our leaving the company
  • Going digital with documents by means of emailing instead of printing out all documents.
  • Giving our office appliances a break after a long use by unplugging computer and printers over the weekend
  • Turning off all lights in office, coffee room, and along the aisle before leaving the office

Meanwhile, all of IMPACT’s restaurants, including banqueting and catering services, source products that are locally grown, in season, and organic to ensure freshness and high quality standards.

Mr. Loy Joon How, general manager of IMPACT Exhibition Management Co, said: “The MICE industry generates a fair amount of waste and materials that are unfriendly to the environment, e.g. booth constructions, signage, carpets, paper and transportations. As a venue, we are committed to educating our customers to adopt green and environmental friendly solutions for their events at our venue and to do our best to preserve the environment.”

IMPACT’s facilities feature water-efficient landscaping using rainwater stored in a man-made lake for all landscape maintenance to reduce water consumption.

The organisation is replacing artificial lighting with LED technology across the venue to enhance our ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard certification.

In addition, all signage such as posters, paper documents, flyers, throughout the facility will be retrofitted with the digital system. All escalators are shut off during non-event use. Elsewhere, the air-conditioning at exhibit spaces and pre-function areas is left off.

Event organisers, customers, vendors, and partners are encouraged to conduct shows and events greenly by using mostly recyclable material and avoid carpets for their shows.
