Pledges to plant 100 trees over five years, welcomes community to enjoy nature outdoors.

Plant a Tree with DTP 

Residents and businesses of Tanjong Pagar are welcome to contact DTP at if they wish to donate a tree at a fee of $300 that goes to the Garden City Fund’s Plant a Tree Campaign, a not-for-profit initiative of National Parks Board (NParks), so that a new tree will be planted in Duxton.

DTP has planted 16 trees as of today

The 16 trees were donated by DTP through the Plant-A-Tree programme by NParks’ Garden City Fund, a registered charity and Institution of Public Character (IPC). DTP has pledged to work with other partners and stakeholders to plant a total of 100 trees in the precinct over the next five years as a show of support to the One Million Trees movement, which is led by NParks.

DTP Community Green

Discover Tanjong Pagar Community Green is a 17,760 sqft (1,650 sqm) open space bounded by Tras Link, Wallich Street and Peck Seah Street (between Sofitel Singapore City Centre at Guoco Tower and Orchid Hotel). Facilitated by URA and Singapore Land Authority (SLA), and supported by NParks and National Environment Agency (NEA), the space has been adopted by DTP since November 2019 so that its members can continue to beautify the community green as well as create opportunities to build and give back to the community that the members have come to know and care for.

DTP’s sustainability programmes

Besides the collective effort to plant trees within the district, members of DTP have also embarked on their own sustainability programmes aimed at reducing carbon footprint, single-use plastics and waste, as well as increasing energy and water efficiencies.

Since 2017, Sofitel Singapore City Centre has been recycling used Nespresso capsules in an effort to save the earth. They recently emerged winner in Nespresso’s 2019 sustainability campaign, standing out amongst other hotels and was awarded the Nespresso Velosophy Bicycle, an up-cycled bicycle where the frame is made with 300 used capsules. The hotel also has a herb garden on level 5 where locally grown herbs and botanicals are used in the dishes and drinks at Racines and 1864 lobby lounge. They have also taken steps to stop the use of plastic straws and plastic water bottles.

OUE Downtown Gallery also has a garden which they open to children to visit and learn about garden-related topics. In addition, the fruits in the garden are harvested and the seeds are saved. To date, they have amassed more than 1,000 seeds and are working with a partner, Edible Garden City, to create jobs for young people with autism by packing and selling the seeds.

At Oasia Hotel Downtown, guests are served with water in carafes in the rooms as well as for meetings and events, replacing single-use water bottles and straws, while Carlton City Hotel uses biodegradable food packing when it fulfils its delivery orders. In some developments such as Carlton City Hotel and Oasia Hotel Downtown, green walls and gardens feature prominently within the architecture, a welcome respite to the built urban environment.
