Sustainability at PLQ

Together, we can make the difference. People remain at the heart of our vision in creating the best places.  We recognise that sustainability resources are best shared so that our works are understood and celebrated by all. With careful consideration for the environmental, social and economic outcomes in response to complex global forces, a truly sustainable environment can only be achieved through shared efforts with our stakeholders. 

For several years, Lendlease has identified climate change as a material risk to creating the best places. As we continuously work with industry and government partners to develop plans to respond to its physical risks on our business. We’re sharing our approach of assessing and managing PLQ’s climate related risks and opportunities to build on a shared sustainable future.

Surround yourself with lush landscapes rich in biodiversity
The architecture of Paya Lebar Quarter integrates greenery into all aspects of the buildings - from the ground plane to the roof areas, from the sky gardens to the facades. With an aspiration to be tree positive, we're planting over 300% more trees than previously on site.

Bask in active, beautiful, clean waters
Our beautiful outdoor spaces are beautifully fringed by rain gardens, kids' play areas and lush landscaping employing principles of Active, Beauty and Clear (ABC) Waters. By cleaning, attenuating and detaining stormwater from over 30% of the total site area, we're proud to be the first development in Singapore by a private developer to receive the ABC Waters certification from the Public Utilities Board.
