Eco-Food Court - Introduction

The Eco-Food Court Certification programme, endorsed by Singapore Environmental Council (SEC), serves as a platform that seeks to engage Singapore food courts to reduce environmental impacts and raise awareness on sustainability.

Food courts are evaluated in the areas of Environmental Management System, Efficient use of Energy & Water, Waste Management System, Education Awareness of Environmental Messages, Environmental Friendly use of Resources and Potential Savings on Utilities.

As part of NUS commitment to promote socially responsible behaviour, the Office of Estate & Development (OED) and Office of Environmental Sustainability (OES) partners to extend environmental sustainability to dense traffic locations like canteens. With the joint effort, The Deck (Arts Canteen) attained the first Eco Food court certification by SEC. OES will continue to work with SEC to audit the remaining canteens on campus.
