In 2016, Singapore ratified the Paris Agreement, thus formally committing itself to reduce its emissions intensity, by 36 per cent from 2005 levels by 2030 and to stabilize emissions with the aim of peaking no later than 2030.
Singapore unveiled its Climate Action Plan to meet its targets under the Paris Agreement, outlining measures to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and enhance resilience to climate change.
