Singapore – Complemented by two of Singapore’s landmark hotels, Fairmont Singapore and Swissôtel The Stamford, Raffles City Convention Centre has been recertified with the BCA GREEN MARK AWARD (GOLD) for existing non-residential buildings by the Building and Construction Authority.                                                                                                                       

The BCA Green Mark awards in turn recognises developers, building owners and individuals who have made outstanding achievements in environmental sustainability in the built environment. Raffles City Convention Centre was first recognised as a Green Mark (Gold Award) building in 2018, and this recertification in 2021 is a strong testament to the ongoing commitment of the venue and the entire hotel complex to responsible green initiatives and practices. Each cycle of the BCA Green Mark awards is valid for 3 years.                                        

The 108,000 square feet Raffles City Convention Centre offers prime, flexible event space; including 34 function rooms, meeting rooms and three magnificent ballrooms located on a single floor with direct access to 2,030 guestrooms and suites across the two Hotels.  Long-standing and strong supporters of sustainability and the environment, Fairmont Singapore and Swissôtel The Stamford’s leading innovations and green achievements were also most recently recognised in the Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific (HICAP) Sustainable Hotel Awards in September 2020. The Hotels beat industry contenders within the Asia Pacific region and emerged winner in the Climate Action category.                                            

Mr Marcus Hanna, General Manager of Fairmont Singapore and Swissôtel The Stamford shared, “We are delighted to receive the BCA Green Mark Gold recognition once again, which truly affirms our commitment towards the larger environment in which we as a business and corporate citizen operate. Much as we are an experienced and preferred venue for large and small scale events, we are equally proud to be known for our green practices and sustainable efforts that will give our clients the added assurance and confidence when they hold events with us at Raffles City Convention Centre”
