Carbon Emissions

Singapore contributes less than 0.2% of global emissions. We will nevertheless continue to take steps to reduce our carbon emissions in the coming decades.

Historically, our strategic position along the East-West trade routes has made Singapore a natural location for oil storage and refining facilities serving the region. Building on our position as a key regional port, the refining and petrochemical plants help create synergies and are part of a business supply network in Southeast Asia, the Western Pacific, South Asia and Australasia. However, the refining and petrochemical sector is a large source of our carbon emissions. Nevertheless, Singapore is working on an on-going and continuous basis to improve our levels of energy efficiency.
