Join our Journey

Towards a healthier planet for all, starting right here at the water’s edge.

About Our Better Nature

Our planet is the one thing we all have in common. It connects us, sustains us, and is where we all belong. Now more than ever, it calls for us to collectively tap into our true nature to preserve and protect. Our sustainability journey is the cornerstone of our waterfront neighbourhood, and we’re ready to share it with you. This winter, we invite you to a series of experiences that will inspire you and your young ones to do better because together, we share the responsibility of shaping a greener, healthier world for all.

Our Sustainability Journey

Our purpose is to collectively create the world’s most inspiring waterfront neighbourhood, and sustainability is the cornerstone of this journey. Since 2008, it has guided how we build, use energy and water, and interact with people and businesses. Our assessment of how we can improve is ongoing and collaborative, continually seeking ways to empower our community and better our world.

Water

We’ve implemented numerous measures to conserve water, including our blackwater plant, which converts effluent to irrigation standards, and our desalination plant, which can produce 3.3 million litres of fresh water daily. Watch this space!

Waste

We divert 37% of all waste collected annually. Tenants recycle and manage waste responsibly, which we monitor through regular inspections. We’ve also signed the Plastics Pact, a global initiative that aims to change how plastic is used to lessen the impact of plastics on the environment.

Energy

All tenants have electricity meters, which are fantastic for monitoring consumption and eco-consciousness. In certain spots around the neighbourhood, we’re using seawater cooling for air conditioning, and we generate our own energy through solar panels, a game-changer for sustainability!
