It is official: Singapore aims to achieve net zero by 2050 while bringing forward a peak on emissions before the decade is over.

Forming Singapore’s revised 2030 Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), deputy prime minister Lawrence Wong announced on Oct 25 the republic’s most ambitious headline target yet, along with an intermediate goal of 60 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO2e) in 2030, down from 65 MtCO2e previously.

Speaking at the Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) 2022, Wong says Singapore will submit these updates to its Long-Term Low-Emissions Development Strategy (LEDS) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) by the end of the year.
