Energy consumption is one of the main sources of carbon in Singapore. Our household appliances, transport systems, industrial and commercial activities all run on electricity and fuel. A vibrant Singapore relies on consuming electricity.
However, as carbon dioxide is invisible and the negative effects of climate change take a long time to show, it is easy for people to consume electricity without realising the consequences.

Singapore accounts for less than 0.2% of global emissions.
To achieve a significant cut in global carbon emissions, concerted international effort is required. But this does not mean there is nothing we can do to help.
