In Singapore’s Budget 2021 announcement on Feb 16 by Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat, the topic of climate change was mentioned. “Climate change is a global emergency and has caught on the government to take stronger climate actions,” said Heng in his speech, as he notes that Singapore’s initiative towards a greener nation is a continuous one that started with Lee Kuan Yew.
With that, Heng introduced the Singapore Green Plan 2030 that will focus on Singapore’s journey towards being a greener nation. “Sustainability is journey and not a destination. The work is never done,” said Heng.
