Singapore’s Going Sustainable for a Cleaner, Greener Future

Singapore has a new blueprint for the future, and it's good news for the environment.

The plan includes such measures such as reduced car ownership, increased focus on recycling and waste management, clean energy (with the goal of eventually becoming a zero waste nation by 2030) and the widespread adoption of sustainable practices in business and industry.
