The Singapore government says it is seeking to create a Green Economy through green growth opportunities to create new jobs, transform the nation’s industries, and harness sustainability as a competitive advantage.

The Green Economy is one of five pillars under the Green Plan 2030, a whole-of-nation movement to advance Singapore’s national agenda on sustainable development.

The Green Plan underlines Singapore’s commitments under the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and Paris Agreement.
