Here’s another update from us about our sustainability efforts, this time it’s about water!
In 2013 we dug our own ground water well and it started pumping in mid-2013.
This allows us to independently supply our own water for non-potable (non drinking) requirements in the public areas of the mall, putting less strain on the public infrastructure and public water supply.
(Retail outlets still require the public supply e.g. our restaurants and coffee shops).
This project did require a substantial financial investment at the time but the long-term benefits are considerable including a reduced demand from public supply and savings in water charges.
And as a renewable source, it contributes to our sustainability strategy.
