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.
"The Sustainable Singapore Blueprint outlines our national vision and plans for a more liveable and sustainable Singapore," the campaign website states, "to support the diverse needs and growing aspirations of Singaporeans."
“This blueprint is a plan for action and provides all of us a unique opportunity to work together to create a better home, a better environment, and a better future that we can all be proud of.”- Sustainable Singapore
