The Treetops Green Philosophy
ENHANCING THE MIND, BODY AND SOUL
Based on a strong belief in the virtues of a holistic approach to wellness, Treetops is a serviced apartment in Singapore that is dedicated to going green and aims to offer the finest in eco-luxury living. Through the adoption of a Green Philosophy that inculcates healthy living practices and adopting state-of-the-art facilities with greener touches within your living areas and surrounding environment, we hope to nourish the body and elevate the spirit to give you a richer, more fulfilling Body, Mind & Soul experience.
Here are some of our unique offerings that we have for you.
MIND – Green Landscape
With 200 exotic plant species covering 60 percent of the estate land, a refreshing sight of evergreen foliage greets guests all year round. Based on the attention restoration theory (S. Kaplan, 1995), exposure to nature helps to reduce mental fatigue.
In addition, according to Aruni Bhatnagar, Ph.D, lead study author and professor of medicine, University of Louisville, their 5-year study also shows that living in a neighbourhood dense with trees, bushes and other green vegetation may be good for the health of one’s heart and blood vessels.
Considering how nature promotes several health benefits, Treetops continuously enhances its unrivalled green landscape so that you can wake up to a luscious green canopy of native trees every morning. We also invite you to take a stroll at our Herbs and Spices Garden for a quick respite anytime.
MIND – Mindfulness about Going Green and Being Healthy: GO GREEN DAY
Treetops aspires to create a place where you can truly relax and unwind. We dedicate every alternate Friday as a “Go Green Day”, which aims to drive the message of caring for the Body and Mind through inculcating healthy living practices into our daily lives, all while playing a part for the environment too. All our staff will be in our Go green t-shirts on that day, and are encouraged to practice the 3 Don’ts:
- Don’t drive; take public transport instead,
- Don’t take the lift; use stairs wherever possible, and
- Don’t take fried & oily food; opt for healthier choices such as fruits and vegetables.
Fresh fruits are freely distributed on this day as we invite you to join in our green day activities too. In our effort to extend our energy conservation initiatives, the water feature at the lobby area will also be off two hours earlier than usual on Go Green Days.
MIND – Mindfulness about the Environment: CONSERVATION & RECYCLING
Understanding the growing concerns on environmental issues faced in today’s society, Treetops seeks to do our part to make the world a greener place by actively practicing Corporate Social Responsibility for a worth global cause.
Since the start of Treetops’ Go Green Project in 2009, green retrofits and initiatives such as the Tri-Gen system and Green Linen Programme have been able to help reduce our impact on the environment. Through shared commitment and concerted efforts by the Treetops team, we are proud to have been able to set the frontier in reducing our overall ecological footprints with the following achievements:
Treetops saves up to 965,000 Litres of water each year through the implementation of the Go Green Project as well as the Green Linen Programme, which reduced the frequency of guest apartments’ linen change to twice a week. The water saved by Treetops each year is enough for each guest to take 7,720 times of 5 minutes worth of shower for 21 years!
Energy Savings & Carbon Emissions
With our Tri-Gen system and many other energy saving initiatives, Treetops has reduced our energy consumption by more than 50%. In terms of carbon footprint, the same amount of energy saved is equivalent to a 1,543 tonnes per annum reduction in CO2 emission. This is equivalent to the total amount of Carbon being filtered by 36,277 trees across a decade.
Apart from this, recycling bins are also conveniently located within the premises to encourage recycling amongst our guests. All wastes from the apartments are also sorted into recyclables and non-recyclables at our Central Bin Centre prior to final disposal to further improve the percentage of waste being recycled.
Each and every one is important in contributing to our overall environmental sustainability. Treetops hopes to inspire you to embrace eco-living habits by incorporating Green practices into your daily lifestyles even when you return home.
BODY – Excellent Indoor Air Quality

These systems help remove harmful dust particles and bacteria in the air that can be detrimental to human health. At the same time, they ensure an adequate supply of Oxygen indoors by reducing unnecessary amounts of Carbon Dioxide within the apartments. Readings taken during our regular air quality checks have shown that the indoor air quality within our apartment is superior to outdoor air.
