At Fairmont Singapore, we are committed to constantly redefine our hospitality experience while demonstrating our values towards sustainability.

We aim to achieve our sustainability goals through collaborating with partners to enhance corporate social responsibility, working with our staff to implement green initiatives and inviting our guests to experience our values on sustainability at Fairmont Singapore & adjacent sister property, Swissôtel The Stamford.

Fairmont Singapore is committed to sustainability and we are working with like-minded partners to minimize environmental impact by providing eco-friendly bathroom amenities.

Le Labo is one of few fragrance houses that is on PETA’s list of cruel-free brands (does not contain animal products nor tested on animals). To advocate sustainability, consumers are encouraged to bring their own empty bottles to refill their fragrances purchased at Le Labo stores.

Reduce, Re-use and Recycle

At Fairmont Singapore & Swissôtel The Stamford, we have replaced one-time use plastics straws and cutleries with biodegradable options as we take a step towards building a sustainable future. The plastic-free movement is one of the many sustainability initiatives that Fairmont Singapore & Swissôtel The Stamford have implemented over the years.

Restaurants with buffet menus have multiple Live Stations where dishes are prepared à la minute based on guests’ requests, rather than in bulk. We also partner with Treatsure where guests can opt for buffet-in-a-box at selected days and times to minimise food wastage from our buffet lines.

Using AI trackers from Lumitics, the world’s most seamless smart food waste tracker that tracks all food waste in the kitchen, we were able to cut avoidable food waste at our restaurants. With Lumitics’ food waste management solution insights, we were able to know how much and what food waste our kitchens were generating from the detailed analysis and reports shared. With the insights, we then worked on optimising our production, preserving yield rates, smarter purchasing of ingredients and better menu engineering to avoid further food wastage. Take a look at this technology with this feature by Channel News Asia.

Apart from working with Lumitics, we also turned food scraps into organic fertilizer for the hotel’s Aquaponics Garden – which suppliers herbs and ingredients to our food and beverage outlets.

Resource Conservation

Fairmont Singapore & Swissôtel The Stamford kick started the digital newspaper initiative in February 2015 which saw the availability of online versions of The Straits Times and International New York Times through an application.

This has brought about increased productivity for guest services and housekeeping and reduces hotel waste; with savings of over 4,500 man hours in guests services and 1,800 hours in housekeeping each year. The weight of newspapers saved for both hotels equals to 247 tonnes per year.
