Singapore Green Plan 2030 Key Targets

Singapore Green Plan 2030 charts ambitious and concrete targets to advance Singapore’s national agenda on sustainable development. The five key pillars under the Green Plan encompass targets that touch almost every dimension of our lives.

  • Develop over 130 ha of new parks, and enhance around 170 ha of existing parks with more lush vegetation and natural landscapes.
  • Double our annual tree planting rate between 2020 and 2030, to plant 1 million more trees across Singapore
  • Increase nature parks’ land area by over 50% from 2020 baseline
  • Every household will be within a 10-minute walk from a park
  • Add 1000 ha of green spaces
A Green Citizenry that Consumes and Wastes Less
  • Reduce the amount of waste to landfill per capita per day by 20%
  • Reduce household water consumption to 130 litres per capita per day
  • Reduce the amount of waste to landfill per capita per day by 30%
Green Commutes
  • Achieve 75% mass public transport (i.e. rail and bus) peak-period modal share
  • Expand rail network from around 230km today to 360km by early 2030s
  • Triple cycling paths to 1,320km from 460km in 2020
Strengthen Green Efforts in Schools
  • Achieve a two-thirds reduction of net carbon emissions from the schools sector
  • At least 20% of schools to be carbon neutral
Green Energy
  • The International Civil Aviation Organization’s aspirational goals of 2% annual fuel efficiency improvement from now to 2050 and carbon neutral growth from 2020
  • The International Maritime Organization’s target to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from international shipping by at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008 levels, and to phase out such GHG emissions in this century
  • Increase solar energy deployment by five-fold to at least 2 GWp, which can meet around 3% of our 2030 projected electricity demand and generate enough electricity to power more than 350,000 households a year (1.5 GWp by 2025, which can meet around 2% of our 2025 projected electricity demand and generate enough electricity to power more than 260,000 households a year)
  • 200 MW of energy storage systems deployment beyond 2025, which can power more than 16,000 households a day
  • Best-in-class generation technology that meets heat-rate/emissions standards and reduces carbon emissions
  • Diversified electricity supply with clean electricity imports
Greener Infrastructure and Buildings
  • Reduce energy consumption of desalination process from current 3.5kWh/m3 to 2kWh/m3
  • Singapore’s first integrated waste and used water treatment facility to be 100% energy self-sufficient (Tuas Nexus)
  • Green 80% of Singapore’s buildings (by Gross Floor Area) by 2030
  • 80% of new buildings (by Gross Floor Area) to be SLE buildings from 2030
  • Best-in-class green buildings to see an 80% improvement in energy efficiency (over 2005 levels) by 2030
Sustainable Towns and Districts
  • Reduce energy consumption in existing HDB towns by 15%
Cleaner-energy Vehicles
  • New registrations of diesel cars and taxis to cease from 2025
  • 7 EV-Ready Towns with chargers at all HDB carparks by 2025
  • All new car and taxi registrations to be of cleaner-energy models from 2030
  • Target 60,000 charging points nationwide by 2030, including 40,000 in public carparks and 20,000 in private premises
New Investments to be Among the Best-in-Class
Sustainability as a New Engine for Jobs and Growth
  • Jurong Island to be a sustainable energy and chemicals park
  • Singapore as a sustainable tourism destination
  • Singapore as a leading centre for green finance and services to facilitate Asia’s transition to a low-carbon and sustainable future
  • Singapore as a carbon services hub in Asia
  • Singapore as a leading regional centre for developing new sustainability solutions
  • Groom a strong pool of local enterprises to capture sustainability opportunities
