Our buildings’ green features include an outdoor weather station that measures external temperatures to set optimal air conditioning temperatures indoors; condensate water recovery systems for cooling; and green building monitors that track energy and water consumption. Smart technologies such as insulated double-glazed facade curtain glass walls reduce the load on air conditioning systems and help to reduce our impact on the environment.
ORQ recognizes the importance of partnering the community to achieve our green vision. We adopt green leases and green fit-out guides, and work closely with our tenants to ensure that they uphold agreed standards in their fit-out and operations. To reinforce our green efforts, we actively engage stakeholders through our recycling programme, and rally for the community to adopt environmentally responsible practices via our digital platforms.

A structured recycling programme is part of our sustained efforts to care for the environment. Conventional and electronic waste recycling bins are placed in public areas to allow segregation of paper, glass, plastic and general waste, as well as electronic wastes. We also work closely with office and retail tenants to raise awareness and encourage participation in recycling programmes.
Once every quarter, used fluorescent tubes are collected and sent for recycling, while electronic waste is amassed on an annual basis. Aside from the ongoing efforts, we continuously explore new initiatives to reduce, reuse and recycle.
