Singapore Green Plan

The Singapore Green Plan 2030 is a multi-ministry, 'whole-of-nation' effort to encourage sustainable development.
The Singapore Green Plan 2030 outlines the country’s sustainable development efforts over the next decade.

The plan is supported by the Ministries of Education, National Development, Sustainability and the Environment, Trade and Industry, and Transport. The Green Plan seeks to achieve concrete key targets over the next 10 years, strengthening Singapore’s commitments to achieve long-term net-zero emissions as soon as viable. Singapore strives to be a model for the Southeast Asian region and has ranked ahead regionally in the Energy Transition Index 2021 by the World Economic Forum.

This multi-agency effort features the following five key pillars:

  1. City in Nature: to create a green, liveable and sustainable home for Singaporeans.
  2. Sustainable Living: to make reducing carbon emissions, keeping the environment clean and saving resources and energy a way of life in Singapore.
  3. Energy Reset: to use cleaner energy and increase energy efficiency to lower Singapore’s carbon footprint.
  4. Green Economy: to seek green growth opportunities to create new jobs, transform Singapore’s industries and harness sustainability as a competitive advantage.
  5. Resilient Future: to build up Singapore’s climate resilience and enhance its food security.

The Singapore Green Plan builds on sustainability efforts from preceding decades. It seeks to improve Singapore’s economic, climate and resource resilience, creating new green job opportunities and enhancing the quality of the natural environment.
