Valuing Our Resources
Reducing Our Waste
In line with the principles of a circular economy, the Group remains steadfast in managing our waste efficiently and seeks to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste across our operations. We have removed all the trash bins from each colleague’s workstation to raise their consciousness about proper waste disposal and clean recycling. Nina Hospitality has taken a comprehensive review of the entire process of food waste management, from procurement and operations to implementation. In addition, our housekeepers have received extensive training on the importance of minimising waste and maximising recycling efforts.
The issue of single-use plastics is gaining prominence in the public consciousness. Nina Hospitality has established a policy and procedure, including a ban on single-use plastics and a push for recyclable or biodegradable alternatives.
During the Reporting Period, about 18,723 tonnes of non-hazardous waste was disposed of by our managed buildings. In the same year, the amount of recyclables collected increased by 191 tonnes, 80% of which was paper.
Minimising Our Water Consumption
Water is our valuable resource. We take a holistic approach towards water management and closely monitored water consumption within our business operation and strive to minimise it. Different scales of water reduction measures are implemented.
Water harvesting systems such as rainwater harvesting systems are deployed in our construction projects to reduce water consumption. In addition, a rainwater recycling system is a suggested item under the Optional Green Design and Construction Checklist, Sustainable Procurement Guidelines. Nina Hospitality reduces the use of tablecloths, which minimises laundry water consumption. In the future, Nina Hospitality will consider installing a water harvesting system.
We plan to install a rainwater harvesting system with an estimated water reduction of 51.7% for irrigation for the renovated Nina Park. We will continue regularly reviewing the water management plans for all our buildings and construction projects and introduce initiatives where areas for improvement are identified.
