"The purpose of this investment was twofold: first to consolidate and support our customers' growth in the years to come, and second to build and operate this facility in a way that would meet both our and the clients' values in terms of sustainable development," says Yves Laforgue, managing director of SDV in Singapore.
The project is in line with SDV's environmental customer solution, which designs eco-solutions to reduce CO2 emissions.
The Singapore warehouse is targeting the highest "green" certifications. In March, it became the first one to be Green Mark Platinum certified in Singapore. It will also be the largest logistics center in Asia to obtain the LEED Gold certification, SDV officials said.
SDV, a subsidiary of the BollorÃƒÂ© Group, has a network of 540 offices in 93 countries.
