SINGAPORE – The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) now has eight zero-energy buildings, with its latest one producing about 2,500 fewer tonnes of carbon dioxide per year than a normal building – the equivalent of more than 7,000 round-trip flights between Singapore and Hong Kong.
By the end of this year, it will have also installed another 13,000 solar panels on its campus, in addition to the existing 19,000 panels installed since 2015.
These sustainable investments bagged NTU an award at a ceremony held by the European Chamber of Commerce, Singapore (EuroCham Singapore) on Thursday. It was one of five organisations to win awards, out of 35 nominations that were judged by a panel of industry leaders and sustainability experts.
