SINGAPORE'S Changi Airport is targeting to reduce electricity consumption and use more recycled water at its terminals over the next three years.
As part of its effort towards environmental sustainability and the Changi Airport Group's (CAG) plan to set up an Environmental Management System based on ISO 14001 standards, the CAG announced a set of targets at the 'Changi Goes Green' roadshow on Monday.
These initiatives include dimming lights at airport terminals during off-peak hours, using natural lighting where possible, and installing motion sensors in some areas.
Changi Airport will also continue to explore means to use more recycled water from 55 per cent to 58 per cent over the next three years.
The airport currently uses recycled rainwater to irrigate plants, and NEWater for airport fire-fighting, sanitation and cooling of air conditioning chillers.
Other measures to conserve water include installation of tap flow regulators in all toilet taps to limit water flow from six litres per minute to two litres per minute.
