This guide is developed by the Ministry of the Environment and the Water Resources (MEWR) and her two
statutory boards, the National Environment Agency (NEA) and PUB, the national water agency. It provides a
list of environmentally-friendly best practices that the MEWR Family (ie MEWR, NEA and PUB) and other public
agencies can adopt for their events, be it internal or external. The best practices, which are not
exhaustive, are grouped in three Tiers:
2. Why was the Guide developed?
To assist event organisers, NEA and PUB have been publishing tips on how to organise more
environmentally-friendly events. These tips are available on their websites such as tips on 3Rs- Reduce,
Reuse and Recycle, energy efficiency and water saving. The MEWR Family have also been implementing
environmentally-friendly best practices at all their events. MEWR has consolidated all the tips into
a “Guide to Implementing Environmentally-Friendly Best Practices for Events” for implementation
at all our events, hoping to build a consistent set of MEWR Family best practices for all our events that
can be used to brand our events. This highlights MEWR Family’s resolve to take the lead and walk the
talk by setting good examples to all our stakeholders in caring for our environment.
3. Who should use the Guide?
We hope that the public sector can take the lead in green practices and sustainability. Any event organisers
can also use the Guide as a reference when organising events.
4. Is the Guide for public use?
Public may download the online version of the guide here.
Public who may wish to get more information on specific environmentally-friendly practices may refer to the
