CAG SR 2017-2018

We also innovated with food waste digestors across terminals, which use microbes to convert organic waste into water.This initiative cut over 200 tonnes of food waste in 2017. In terms of climate resilience, the entire Changi East site, where Terminal 5 will be built, has been designed to be at 5.5 metres above the mean sea level. In addition, an extensive drainage network will be built at Changi East to ensure that the possibility of flooding is minimised. CONNECTING THE WORLD SUSTAINABLY This SR marks a new chapter in CAG’s sustainability journey and is a timely one as CAG marks its 10th Anniversary since corporatisation in 2009. We are thankful to our airport partners for their collaboration and will pursue more initiatives in the coming years to connect the world more sustainably and to push the boundaries for an even more sustainable Changi Airport. LEE Seow Hiang Chief Executive Officer REPORTING SCOPE This report covers the assets and operations under CAG’s business control at Singapore Changi Airport for the period of 1 st April 2017 to 31 st March 2018, unless otherwise stated. The scope covers the activities of the four passenger terminal buildings and at the aircraft operating areas of Changi Airport.The four terminal buildings are referred to as Terminal 1 (T1),Terminal 2 (T2),Terminal 3 (T3) and Terminal 4 (T4) in this report.This report is published as a supplement to CAG’s Annual Report 2017/18 1 . 102-50 ENRICHING COMMUNITIES CAG has over the years leveraged our Changi Foundation programmes to reach out to our youth beneficiaries. Our employees help to level up the job readiness of our beneficiaries through a myriad of activities ranging from one-on-one academic coaching, to mentoring at the Changi workplace and even weekend evening soccer games through the CAG-Saturday Night Lights programme. Our corporate citizenry efforts were enriched with the participation of 21 airport partners who provided job attachment and experiential programme opportunities. In our SR, we are committing to an ambitious target of 25% staff volunteerism rate by 2020 and to engage an even wider group of 35 airport partners. THRIVING ECONOMY In FY2017/18, Changi Airport handled 63 million passengers, with a flight taking off or landing every 80 seconds.We connect Singapore with the world, facilitating trade and leisure links to over 400 cities across 100 countries and territories. The airport represents a key gateway for air cargo, accounting for more than half of Singapore’s non-oil trade by value.With a record 2.1 million tonnage handled in the year, Changi Airport consistently ranks among the top 10 largest airports in the world for international cargo tonnage. In partnership with our airlines and industry stakeholders, our team is committed to growing our connectivity to the world and strengthening our status as a global air hub. Together, Changi Airport’s eco-system contributes a significant 6% to Singapore’s GDP. FLOURISHING PLANET We are committed to conserving our planet and have implemented solutions to optimise our energy and water usage to reduce Changi Airport’s environmental footprint. For the first time, we have set an ambitious target to reduce Changi’s carbon emissions intensity by 20% from FY2017/18 till FY2029/30.This commitment is also in support of Singapore’s Climate Action efforts. CAG undertook more than 10 projects in the past two years to improve Changi’s energy efficiency, including electric vehicle chargers to encourage the conversion from diesel to electric-powered baggage tractors, a segmented baggage handling system at T4 to conserve electricity during off-peak hours, and the use of natural sky-lighting for our passenger terminals. Our energy efficiency efforts are validated by the Airport Council International’s Level 3 Airport Carbon Accreditation which recognises CAG’s efforts to optimise our carbon footprint and to bring our airport partners on board.
