Making changes for positive outcomes

Our mission is to take responsible decisions to benefit our community, customers, and the environment around us.

We are leading the way on sustainability at Orchard Centre and in the surrounding environment and seek to provide tenants and visitors with information on ESG-related issues plus opportunities for action to create positive change.
