|Using energy responsibly|
POLICY IN A NUTSHELL
EDUCATING SINGAPOREANS ABOUT ENERGY AND CLIMATE CHANGE
We encourage stakeholders in Singapore to learn about climate change, and learn how they can play their part to prevent it.
Carbon emissions make up 97% of our total greenhouse gas emissions.
These emissions cause more heat to be trapped into the atmosphere, leading to climate change.
Energy consumption is one of the main sources of carbon in Singapore.
Our industrial and commercial activities, transport systems and household appliances all run on electricity and fuel.
LOOKING FOR WAYS TO CUT OUR EMISSIONS
A vibrant Singapore relies on readily available energy.
However, we are constantly looking for ways to continue producing and consuming energy in an environmentally-responsible way.
PREPARING TO COPE WITH CLIMATE CHANGE
Singapore experiences the effects of climate change along with the rest of the world.
The build-up of carbon dioxide - among other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere - makes our weather hotter and raises the sea level around us.
Our role is to increase understanding of the science and impacts of climate change and keep Singapore prepared.
COOPERATING WITH INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS
While climate change is a global challenge, Singapore remains committed to doing our part as a responsible member of the global community to tackle climate change.
Our statutory board, the National Environment Agency (NEA), keeps Singapore clean and green by protecting Singapore's resources from pollution, maintaining a high level of public health and providing timely meteorological information.
