• Produce 30 percent of Singapore’s nutritional needs locally and sustainably by 2030. This is to make Singapore’s food supply more resilient.
Minister for Sustainability and the Environment, Grace Fu, highlighted that in order to achieve a sustainable future, it will require a whole-of-nation effort, calling every government agency, individual, business, research institution, community group and civil society organisation to work in unison.
In his Facebook post on 9 February 2021, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that while Singapore may be a small country lacking in natural resources, it can still press on with technological and policy solutions for sustainable development.
“The Green Plan will build upon Singapore’s sustainability efforts in decades past, and help the country fulfil its commitments under the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda”, he added.
Spurring on Singaporeans, PM Lee said, “We will do all we can to combat climate change. We need to ensure a Singapore for our future generations. All of us have to work together, and make Singapore a bright green spark for the world.”
