Go Green with eComms
In our deliberate effort to be part of the “Go Green" movement to reduce carbon footprint, we have switched from paper-based statements, notices and letters to electronic communications (“eComms”). With eComms, our Life Insurance policyholders will receive information on their policies in a timely manner.
At China Taiping SG, we strive to continuously support a sustainable green living.

Coastal Clean Up Day
In conjunction with International Coastal Clean Up Day, we organised a Coastal Clean Up at East Coast Park. Braving under the hot sun, the management team and employees worked hard to be the biggest trash collector. Our efforts paid off - collectively we had collected a total of 300kg of trash!
At the end of the activity, everyone felt a huge sense of achievement and joy seeing the coast all clean and beautiful. We aim to continue to play our part in eliminating pollution along our beaches and to bring cleanliness and purity to nature as a whole.

Plant-based Snack Month
As part of our go green initiatives, we encourage our employees to lead a more eco-friendly live by eating less meat and going plant-based. We had a plant-based snack month in September whereby nuts, grains & beans snacks were distributed every week. These vegan snacks not only come with health benefits such as lowering cholesterol levels and chances of heart disease, they also help reduce carbon emission.

Virtual Lunch Talk : Redesigning, Rethinking for a Sustainable Green Living
To kickstart our Go Green journey, we organised an informative lunch talk for our employees in collaboration with Terra SG. The talk highlighted how climate change affects Singapore and how we can rethink possibilities in sustainability. Biodegradable and compostable cutlery was used during lunch as our way of supporting the green movement.
There was also a virtual tour of the Sustainable Singapore Gallery covering water management and zero-waste initiatives and a fun demo on how to make a “paper wallet” using upcycled materials.
Through this virtual talk, our employees had a better understanding of sustainability and how individuals can play a part in our Go Green journey.
