The serviced residence was fitted with water efficient fixtures as well as efficient air-conditioning systems and LED lightings to reduce the building’s carbon footprint. Somerset also encourages its residents to live sustainably. Friendly reminders to switch off lights, save water, and reduce the use of single-use plastic can be found within the apartment. The property has set up a green corner to promote recycling. It also organises events such as tree-planting and environment-themed movie screenings to further inculcate green habits amongst the residents.

Winning 25 awards for its developments in Singapore, China and Vietnam, CapitaLand is the international developer with the most number of wins at the BCA Awards this year. CapitaLand also won the most number of Green Mark awards, clinching 19 GM awards.  CapitaLand continues to be the top real estate developer in Singapore with the most UD Platinum and UD GoldPLUS awards, winning 17 of these awards since the UD Mark Certification scheme was introduced in 2012.
