During its inception, City Square Mall was conceptualised with environmental sustainability in mind, from the construction process to the building features.
- Silt water was treated and recycled during construction, saving water enough to fill 8 Olympic-sized pools
- 50 truckloads of sand were saved by using an alternative eco-friendly construction material
- Using innovative construction methods which saved enough steel to rival the weight of 365 saloon cars
- Annual electircity savings of 12 million kWh per year, equivalent to the average electricity consumption of more than 3,100 units of 4-room HDB flats
- Reduction in CO2 emission of over 6,600 tonnes per year, equivalent to the amount of CO2 emission absorbed by 154,000 trees
City Square Mall has achieved the ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 50001 and SS 577 certifications.

- Variable Air Volume technology in air-conditioners helps to moderate the mall's temperature, saving energy while shopping at ease
- More cooling coils are used in the air-conditioning system to treat air and control indoor humidity better.
City Green, the 49,000 square feet park is like a green carpet laid out in front of the mall to welcome visitors. Filled with numerous wonderful surprises, City Green is designed to provide a learning experience about ecology and the natural environment.
