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.

Sustainable sourcing

Since March 2020, our Aquaponics Farm has supplied an estimated 30% of vegetable and 10% of fresh fish needs across the Fairmont Singapore every month. In 2022, we harvested around 1,320kg worth of vegetables & herbs; 936kg worth of fishes from our Aquaponics Farm.

Fairmont Singapore and Swissotel The Stamford has been awarded Winner in Climate Action Category for the Annual HICAP Sustainable Hotel Awards 2020.

Running in its 31st installation, the prestigious annual HICAP Sustainable Hotel Awards are designed to recognise hotels in the Asia Pacific region that are creating innovative new methods, strategies and technologies to face today’s sustainable development challenge, while providing tangible examples of sustainable best practices that can be replicated and adapted across the region.

Fairmont At Home has actively supplied sustainably sourced produce like organic meat, Aquaponics greens and wellness products to discerning consumers.

Community outreach

This Christmas, you can bring even more hope for brighter days ahead with a Wishes Start Here Teddy Bear. Available for online purchase at SGD50, all proceeds go to Make-A-Wish® that create grand experiences that deliver life-changing joy for children with critical illnesses.

In collaboration SG Cares Giving Week 2022 and Beyond Singapore, we have organised the ‘Tree of Hope’ programme from 25 November to 20 December 2022. This programme supports children and youths from low income families by granting their Christmas wishes and spread festive cheer. We are looking to support 100 children through this meaningful initiative.

On 12 December 2022, a festive lunch with children from Filos Community Services was hosted at Asian Market Café. We brought the children on a hotel tour to complete this experience during the festive season.

As a token of appreciation for our support and contribution towards SG Cares Giving Week 2022, we received a Bronze Certificate of Appreciation. This recognition is a testament to our commitment to giving back to the community and making a positive impact.

Use of eco-friendly products

At Fairmont Singapore & Swissôtel The Stamford, we have adopted an eco-green cleaning program with approved chemicals that will minimize our hotel’s operational impact on the environment through resource conservation and best practices.

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.

At Fairmont Singapore, we understand the environmental impact of our carbon footprints and energy consumption. Our guest rooms and suites are furbished with smart air-conditioning and presence detection that instantly adjust lightings and room temperature when you leave or enter the room.

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.
