Green Plan

Singapore has set its own sustainability goals. Last year, they launched the Singapore Green Plan 2030 to catalyze a nationwide sustainability movement.

Indranee Rajah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office and Second Minister for Finance and National Development, said the comprehensive plan charts ambitious and tangible targets over the next ten years.

“We want to strengthen Singapore’s economic, climate and resource resilience, improve the living environment of Singaporeans, and generate new business and job opportunities as part of green growth,” she said.

Indranee said that Singapore will require a multi-stakeholder whole-of-nation effort to achieve its sustainability goals.

This will be enabled by a Green Government, with the public sector leading in environmental sustainability; and Green Citizenry, where individuals, communities, and businesses play their part.

“We also want to encourage our citizens to adopt a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and ease them into this green transition,” Indranee said.

According to Indranee, Singapore is continuing to invest heavily in public transportation. Singapore MRT network will grow from 230 kilometers today to 360 kilometers by the early 2030s.

“And we aim to raise the share of public transport trips up to 75 percent by 2030,” she said.
And also, the Singapore government will expand the cycling network to around 1.320 kilometers by 2030 to promote more walking, cycling, and active mobility.
