The Singapore Green Plan 2030 seeks to advance the country's national agenda on sustainable development. It is spearheaded by five ministries - the Ministries of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE), Trade and Industry (MTI), Transport (MOT), National Development (MND), and Education (MOE). It is organised around five pillars: city in nature, energy reset, sustainable living, green economy, and resilient future. The plan aims to achieving net zero emissions as soon as possible, and enable future generations to strive. It also sets targets and make a commitment to global climate action.
