Woodlands Xchange shop owners first to get chance at eco-shop certification [News]
By Channel NewsAsia, 1 Jul 2013.
Shop owners at the soon-to-be-launched Woodlands Xchange will be among the first in Singapore to qualify for certification as eco-shops.
Woodlands Xchange is located within Woodlands MRT station.
This will be made possible under Project: Eco-Shop, Singapore’s first comprehensive eco-certification programme for shop owners.
SMRT Corporation Ltd (SMRT) and Singapore Environment Council (SEC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to create the certification programme.
It is aimed at guiding and encouraging shop owners to fit their shops in an environmentally sustainable manner and adopt eco-friendly habits in their daily operations.
Some eco-friendly habits include turning off electrical equipment when not in use and using energy-efficient lighting.
Shop owners will be awarded the Eco-Shop Label once they have successfully completed an audit.
