We encourage stakeholders in Singapore to learn about climate change, and
learn how they can play
to prevent it. Carbon emissions made up around 95% of our total greenhouse gas emissions in 2014. These emissions
more heat to be trapped into the atmosphere, leading to climate change. Energy consumption is one of
main sources of carbon in Singapore. Our industrial and commercial activities, transport systems and
household appliances all run on electricity and fossil fuel.
Singapore experiences the effects of climate change along with the rest of
the world. The build-up of
dioxide - among other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere - makes our weather hotter and raises the
around us. Our role is to increase understanding of the science and impacts of climate change and
A vibrant Singapore relies on readily available energy.
However, we are constantly looking for ways to continue producing and
consuming energy in an environmentally-responsible way.
While climate change is a global challenge, Singapore remains committed to
doing our part as a
member of the global community to tackle climate change.
Reduce our energy intensity, which is the amount of energy used to generate every dollar of growth.
The Energy Efficiency Programme Office (E2PO) drives energy conservation and efficiency efforts
various sectors. We strive to consume energy efficiently and minimise carbon emissions. Furthermore,
adopt right pricing of energy. We do not subsidise production or consumption of energy so as to
informed production and consumption choices.
The negative effects of climate change take time to manifest. However, awareness and action have to
now. We communicate the implications of climate change to stakeholders from the various sectors, and
encourage them to take steps to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions.
A vibrant Singapore relies on consuming energy.
We push our boundaries through technological innovation and test-bedding. We also monitor advances in
technology and leverage on them to help us achieve sustainable development.
The science of climate change is complex and evolving. Singapore’s preparedness depends on a
understanding of natural phenomena so that we can be one step ahead of its impac
