Despite an increase in our physical footprint with the new DBS Academy in Singapore and offshore tech hub in Hyderabad, DBS offices and branches across six markets consumed 78,000 mWh of energy in 2016 – reducing carbon emissions by 4% and resulting in estimated cost savings of SGD 1.2 million compared to 2015.
Although the estimated total occupancy rate in MBFC increased by 8.5% from 2012 to 2016, electrical energy consumption increased around 2.5% and water consumption remained the same.

* Comparative figures have been restated to include recycled waste from confidential document disposal in Singapore.
In 2016, 456 kg of paper waste were collected from properties across the six countries. This reflects our continual efforts, particularly in Singapore, to reduce paper consumption and encourage responsible waste disposal. Recycling bins are made available at DBS buildings across the region to encourage colleagues to dispose waste responsibly.
