Climate Change 101

Singapore’s Pledge under the Paris Agreement

Climate change is a global challenge that requires a global response.

Although Singapore accounts for only about 0.11 per cent of global emissions, we contribute to international efforts to address climate change under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Singapore is contributing to global efforts to reduce GHG emissions. We are also taking steps to prepare for climate change.

In Singapore, the main sources of GHG emissions are our power, industry, transport and buildings sectors.

Singapore has pledged to reduce our Emissions Intensity (EI) by 36 per cent from 2005 levels by 2030, and stabilise emissions with the aim of peaking around 2030.

To reduce GHG emissions, we will improve energy and carbon efficiency and generate cleaner power. We will also develop and use low-carbon technology and encourage collective action.

To adapt to the impacts of climate change, we have developed a range of adaptation measures, designed with the protection of Singapore and Singaporeans in mind. The measures aim to minimise the adverse effects that climate change could have on the community and economy, as well as our daily lives.
