 Energy Reset
To use cleaner energy and increase our energy efficiency to lower our carbon footprint.
• Reduce energy consumption in HDB towns by 15 percent, through measures such as the using smart LED lights and solar energy.
• 80-80-80 in 2030 – Green 80 percent of Singapore’s buildings (by gross floor area) by 2030; ensure 80 percent of new buildings (by gross floor area) will be classified as super-low-energy (SLE) from 2030; and best- in-class green buildings to see an energy efficiency of 80 percent by 2030.
• Target for government-owned buildings to reach maximum emissions by 2025.
• Cease new registrations of diesel cars and taxis from 2025.
• Target for all new car and taxi registrations to be of cleaner-energy models from 2030.
• Phase out internal combustion engine vehicles, and have all vehicles run on cleaner energy by 2040.
• To get eight towns “EV-ready”, with electric vehicles (EV) chargers deployed at their HDB carparks by 2025.
• Target 60,000 EV charging points across the island by 2030.
• Achieve National Air Quality Target for sulphur dioxide.
• Be a leading centre for Green Finance and Services in Asia and globally.
• Be a leading carbon trading and services hub in Asia.
• Singapore as a carbon services hub in Asia. • Singapore as a leading regional centre for
developing new sustainability solutions.
• Introduce an Enterprise Sustainability Programme, to help enterprises embrace sustainability and develop capabilities in
this area.
• Create new and diverse job opportunities
in sectors such as green finance, sustainability consultancy, verification, credits trading and risk management.
• Promote homegrown innovation under the Research and Innovation & Enterprise Plan 2025, and attract companies to anchor their R&D activities in Singapore.
Green Energy
• Increase solar energy deployment by 400 percent by 2025, which includes covering the HDB roof tops with solar panels.
• Increase solar energy deployment by 500 percent by 2030, with at least 2 gigawatt- peak, capable of powering over 350,000 households a year.
• Tap green energy sources from the ASEAN region and beyond, through electricity imports and hydrogen.
• Increase efficiency with each new generation gas-fired power plants to reduce emissions.
International Commitments
As an aviation and maritime hub, Singapore will play active and important roles in fulfilling two international aspirational goals:
• In Aviation: achieve 2 percent improvement
in fuel efficiency every year until 2050,
Resilient Future
To build up Singapore’s climate resilience and enhance our food security.
• Set aside S$5 billion for coastal and flood
protection measures.
• Develop new solutions to protect
Singapore coastlines against rising sea
• Put in place physical defences to protect
the coastlines along East Coast, Lim Chu Kang, Sungei Kadut, and around Jurong Island by 2030.
and carbon-neutral growth from 2020.
• In Maritime: reduce greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping by at least 50 percent by 2050 (compared to
2008 levels).
Green Economy
To seek green growth to create new jobs, transform our industries and harness sustainability as a competitive advantage.
• Develop Jurong Island to be a sustainable
energy and chemicals park.
