Environmental-Technology-in-SingaporeThe importance of environmental technology in Singapore

The concept of environmental technology was implemented in Singapore since 1968 when the Ministry of Environment developed the “clean and green garden city” program. Ever since the Ministry supervised the impact industrialization had on the city. The “Singapore Green Plan” was reintroduced in 2002 when new concepts for cleaner air, water and land were designed. In 2012 another plan for environmental sustainability was created, turning the environmental technology industry in one of the most developed industries in Singapore. The most recent plan is based on recycling.

Our consultants in company formation will help you set up a recycling company in Singapore.

Environmental policies in Singapore

Singapore is among the few countries in the world that have created a balance between urban development and environmental protection. There are many environmental services companies operating in Singapore that provide wastewater and air treatment. The main governmental bodies regulating environmental technology in Singapore are the Ministry of Environment and the National Environment Agency. The National Environment Agency is part of the Ministry of Environment and deals with the implementation of environmental policies in Singapore. Among the most successful environmental policies in Singapore are:

  • - an upgrading program for food centers,
  • - a grading system for food companies in Singapore,
  • - a new Energy Label for electrical home appliances,
  • - a recycling program in private house and schools in Singapore,
  • - a green transport guide.

The Environment Health Institute (EHI) in Singapore also uses the latest biomedical technologies in order to protect the environment.

Certifications for environmental companies in Singapore

 Singapore companies involved in environmental technology must obtain several certifications with the Singapore Productivity and Standards Board and the Building and Construction Authority. Food companies certified as environmentally friendly are allowed to import foodstuff with very few restrictions. However, they are required to register for VAT purposes in Singapore.

For information on how to obtain environmental certifications, please contact our Singapore specialists.
