SINGAPORE - Oct. 22, 2021 - PRLog -- CapitaLand Group is reinforcing its commitment to sustainability by deepening its philanthropic arm CapitaLand Hope Foundation's (CHF) community support for environmental causes.  Besides contributing to uplift the lives of children and seniors in need, CHF will continue its support for innovative sustainable initiatives and expand its outreach to encourage the community to play a part in protecting the planet for a more sustainable future.  This further elevates CapitaLand's ongoing efforts to create positive impact on the environment and society as part of its 2030 Sustainability Master Plan.

CHF is contributing S$500,000 to a first-of-its-kind green showcase, named Green Grove, at National Library Board's (NLB) next-generation sustainability-focused library, Choa Chu Kang Public Library, at Lot One Shoppers' Mall.  A first in a Singapore library, the Green Grove features an Augmented Reality (AR) Learning Trail where visitors can interact with AR content and learn about Singapore's wildlife and natural landscapes.  There will be a Hydroponics Showcase where workshops will be held to foster interest in urban farming solutions and food security in Singapore.  A Climate Action Corner displays information on climate change to educate the importance of protecting the environment and provide inspiration on minimising one's carbon footprint.  Visitors can also access real-time environmental and nature-related information such as weather forecasts, air quality and bio-diversity activities on a live statistics display.

Mr Tan Seng Chai, Executive Director of CHF, who is also Chief Corporate and People Officer of CapitaLand Investment, said: "At CapitaLand, we place sustainability at the core of everything we do.  As a socially responsible company, we work to bring about positive and lasting change through equipping our communities with greater environmental consciousness.  Since 2005, CHF has supported more than 456,000 beneficiaries including children and seniors in need.  CHF's contribution for NLB's next-generation sustainability-focused library, dovetails with our expansion of CHF's support beyond children and seniors in need to environmental causes.  Through educational programmes for children conducted by our staff volunteers, we aim to inculcate the importance of protecting our planet, as well as inspire them to take collective action to combat climate change.   We will continue to step up our efforts to build an inclusive and sustainable society for future generations."
