ZEISS Singapore certified as an Eco Office
Carl Zeiss Pte Ltd and Carl Zeiss Vision Singapore Pte Ltd have been certified by the Singapore Environment Council to be an Eco Office.
Launched in December 2018, the enhanced Eco Office programme provides applicants with new tools and approaches to begin their certification journey. This includes a greater focus on change management and driving behavioural changes amongst employees.
The Eco Certifications are a critical integral component of GreenDNA, an internationally recognised accreditation system that encourages organisations to adopt a Low Carbon Lifestyle, a green mindset of using One Less, and the practice of Responsible Consumption, rewarding them with internationally recognised carbon emissions reduction (CER) reports and the GreenDNA certificate of accreditation.
A tier system was also introduced to help companies improve over time, and to recognise their efforts and achievements. The tier categories are Eco Office Premium, Professional, Champion and Elite. Offices are encouraged to move up the tiers as they progress. The top Elite category is awarded to offices that have achieved excellent environmental performance, and done well to spread the green message amongst employees.
ZEISS Singapore received the Elite Award which is the highest tier in this Eco Office award.
“Sustainability is a top priority for us at ZEISS and this award further affirms our commitment to a greener environment,” said Ven Raman, Managing Director of ZEISS Southeast Asia.
