Making a Mark at Watermark Awards
What do petrochemicals, semiconductors, hotels and schools have in common?
Plenty we say, as long as one shares a commitment to contribute, protect and ensure water sustainability in Singapore.
At a ceremony held at the Kallang River @ Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park on 28 March evening, Singapore Refining Company Private Limited, United Microelectronics Corporation (Singapore branch), Carlton City Hotel Singapore, Qifa Primary School and Chung Cheng High School (Main) were presented with the Watermark Awards – Singapore’s pinnacle awards to recognise outstanding contributions and commitment to protect and raise awareness of water as a precious resource.
The five winners have distinguished themselves in water efficiency (demonstrating sustained efforts in the efficient use of water), innovativeness (incorporating new initiatives to reduce water use or promote water recycling) and advocacy (educating others and raising awareness of water conservation).
To help the industry, especially large water users better manage their water use and improve water efficiency, PUB has rolled out the ‘Best Practice Guide for Water Efficiency – Buildings’ and will be launching a similar guide for the wafer fabrication and semiconductor sector, and the refineries, petrochemicals and chemicals sector later this year.
