The way we consume seafood is impacting our marine ecosystem
 

3 in 4 of the most popular seafood species we consume in Singapore are not caught sustainably. Think the ikan kuning in nasi lemak, the silver pomfret that goes well with teochew porridge, and the sea bass in fish curry—they are considered to be over-exploited, and could disappear from Singapore’s ecosystem (and our menus) within our lifetime.

THE SEA

Plastic waste is contaminating our seas
 

In 2020, plastic was the largest category of waste disposed of in Singapore, and only 4% was recycled. The remaining plastic waste is either incinerated and buried at Semakau landfill—the nation’s sole landfill—or may end up in the marine environment.

NAVIGATING SINGAPORE

Through its urban and natural environments

Explore

We pride ourselves on being one of the greenest cities in Asia.
We have cutting-edge technologies such as water recycling plants, waste-to-energy facilities, modern sanitation systems, and a diverse ecosystem.

But does that spare us from environmental issues?

Discover the environement issues in Singapore and our solution to it.

Singapore is a haven for rich biodiversity
 

Thanks to our lush greenery and clean waterways, sightings of wildlife like otters, wild boars and hornbills are becoming more frequent!

THE FOREST

But… Urban growth is also causing a decline in biodiversity
 

Clearing forested areas for housing and other economic uses could exacerbate biodiversity loss in Singapore, as plants and animals are deprived of their natural “homes”.

Enter the city

Singapore is heating up twice as fast as the rest of the world…
We are insufferably hotter because of global warming, heat generated from human activities and heat trapped by buildings.

THE LAND

Climate change brings about
longer and more intense rainfall
 

Talk about “rain, rain, go away.” Prolonged heavy rains are an increasingly regular occurrence in Singapore. When drains and canals overflow due to  intense rainfall, flash floods can happen​​, causing disruption to life and damage to property.
