Our Home, Our Environment, Our Future

The Sustainable Singapore Blueprint 2015 outlines our national vision and plans for a more liveable and
sustainable Singapore, to support the diverse needs and growing aspirations of Singaporeans. This blueprint is
a plan for action and provides all of us a unique opportunity to work together to create a better home,
a better environment, and a better future that we can all be proud of.

With the Government, our people and our businesses working together as committed
participants, we can realise our vision for

A Liveable and Endearing Home
