PropertyGuru Green Score: Top 10 Most Eco-Friendly Condos in Singapore

Did you know that the home you decide to buy can have an impact on the environment? As Singapore takes active steps to address climate change, there is a growing commitment to making eco-friendly decisions on an institutional and individual level.

As an individual, where you choose to live, affects your impact on the environment. The energy-efficiency of a building influences your use of utilities such as electricity and water. Besides, living in a property with good public transport access can reduce your reliance on cars.

PropertyGuru recently unveiled the Green Score, a sustainability rating assigned to properties listed on our site and considers factors such as building design and proximity to public transport. Find out more about PropertyGuru’s Green Score here.
