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.
