Over the years, Singapore has spared no effort in our mission for sustainable development.
From designating 2018 as the Year of Climate Action to our annual Climate Action Week, we have made significant efforts to rally for collective action. In 2019, we convened Citizens’ Workgroups. In 2020, we started Alliances for Action, as well as conversations on sustainability to emerge stronger together with citizens, businesses, and NGOs.
Here is what you can do to be a Part of the Green Plan:

Adopt good personal habits
Being more sustainable starts with each and every one of us - there is no action too small. There are many easy ways to reduce waste and recycle in our daily lives to extend the life of our only landfill in Singapore and progress towards a zero waste nation.
Volunteer and participate
There are diverse opportunities to get involved with the community - from events that promote environmental awareness, to ground-up projects, as well as tree planting and conserving our natural heritage.
- Start your own project using the SG Eco Fund
Have a idea or project you want to start? Try applying for financial support to create more positive impact with our SG Eco Fund.
Adopt an energy-efficient lifestyle and use energy-efficient appliances
Improving energy efficiency in households and industries is good for the environment. Doing so conserves energy and supports Singapore’s aim to create a more sustainable, reliable and affordable energy future.
Take public transport, walk or cycle, instead of driving
Using cleaner transport options reduces our carbon footprint, and also keeps our air quality clean. If you need to drive, consider an electric vehicle (EV) when the COE expires.
- Support local produce
By supporting local produce, in addition to boosting Singapore’s food security and economy, consumers can also making environmentally sustainable choices in their everyday food consumption. Local produce is safe, fresher and lasts longer. Local produce also results in less spoilage, food waste, and a lower carbon footprint, as the produce does not need to travel for long periods of time before reaching the consumer.
