Singapore is a City in Nature where large experiences come with small footprints. Through a collective movement, we are reducing our impact on the environment and developing offerings that are both innovative and sustainable.
Singapore has always prioritised sustainability and placed it at the forefront of its long-term plan. In 2009, we launched the first Sustainable Singapore Blueprint to continuously outline strategies that will improve our green footprint by year 2030. Green measures are now woven into the infrastructure of the economy, with emphasis placed on reducing waste and increasing the use of renewable energy sources like solar power. Businesses are also rewarded for sustainable business practices as the government ramps up efforts to create a green economy with green jobs3.
This has led to global recognition for our sustainability efforts:

Commitment has remained high over the years as we step up efforts in tandem with the global conversation. Sustainability is a key area in the Research Innovation and Enterprise (RIE) 2025 plan budget, a five-year blueprint outlining Singapore’s science and technology strategies.
In 2021, the government also launched the Green Plan, outlining a focus on six pillars — a green government, a city in nature, sustainable living, energy reset, a green economy and a resilient future9 —, and green targets to be achieved by year 2030.
New initiatives include goals to double electric vehicle charging points, reduce carbon waste by 30 percent by 2026, and to review carbon tax so that only the best-in-class carbon-intensive investments enter the country. Plans are also in place to transform Jurong Island into a sustainable energy hub, as well as for greater emphasis on sustainable tourism, sustainable packaging, decarbonisation, waste up cycling urban farming and water treatment.10
Overall, interest in sustainability is high, and Singapore is already home to various sustainability events, including but not limited to:
An annual confluence of events anchored by the Ecosperity Conference organised by Temasek, that brings together global business leaders, policy-makers, investors and other communities across the region to discuss pertinent trends in sustainability. In 2021, discussions are focused on decarbonisation and climate action, reimagining nature and resources, and sustainable investing and financing.
Asia’s top regional conference organised by CSRWorks International. The summit is dedicated to discussing trends, techniques, challenges, solutions and success stories in sustainability reporting.
