Sparking a Green Mindset
Sparking a Green MindsetAs we pursue our sustainability agenda, we recognise that our employees play an important role in the green movement. Our efforts are focused on staff awareness and engagement, to adopt a green mindset at work, as well as in their everyday lives.
Earth Hour across the region
Every year, we are part of Earth Hour – the worldwide movement organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). DBS switched off the lights and building signage in 21 of our premises across our key markets as a show of our support for the global campaign.
In Singapore, we launched DBS Earth Hour event “Blackout 2019” with upcycling activity to rally employees to reduce energy consumption in a concerted way. In Indonesia, we organised “Daily Earth Hour” to turn off lights for an hour during lunch. Past outreach efforts included “Go Meatless” days to reduce our collective carbon footprint from meat production, “i-Scream for Climate Change” campaign to encourage staff to walk the stairs to save energy, and “Save a Mug” to encourage the reuse of mugs. We believe that through these little actions, our employees can be the difference to make the world a better place!
