Climate And Environment

In a world where temperatures and sea levels are rising, our mission is clear: to protect and nurture our natural environment, combat climate change, and ensure sustainable resources for generations to come.

What You Should Know

Climate reformation is today’s most pressing global concern. Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane are at historically high levels. Temperatures and sea levels have risen at accelerated rates in the last 20 years. These have led to adverse weather and climatological conditions, resulting in biodiversity loss, crop failures and increased occurrence of natural disasters.

Singapore’s location at the equator means we will experience temperature increases more acutely, and being a small island state makes us especially vulnerable to rising sea levels. Climate change also affects critical supplies, including our food sources. 

Singapore’s Green Plan 2030 is the nation’s environmental sustainability blueprint and sets targets in five pillars. Here are some of the targets in which philanthropy can potentially play a part.

Singapore Green Plan 2030:

Critical Gaps that Remain

While the Green Plan is an important start by the government, saving our planet takes a whole-of-society effort. Individuals, schools, businesses and other organisations must play their part in combating climate change and promoting sustainable ways of living. We identified four areas in which philanthropy can promote a more sustainable lifestyle.
