Developing Singapore's Long-Term Low Emissions Strategy
Global temperatures have been rising faster than ever due to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from human activities. The Paris Agreement calls for global peaking of GHG emissions as soon as possible, and to undertake rapid reductions thereafter to achieve collective carbon neutrality in the second half of this century.
According to the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require global net human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) to fall by about 45% from 2010 levels by 2030, and reach ‘net zero’ around 2050. As the global community embarks on this transition, Singapore also needs to chart a path towards a low-carbon future.
In conjunction with the public consultation exercise by the National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS) on "Developing Singapore's Long-Term Low Emissions Strategy", Temasek is hosting a discussion session on the following topics:
- Improving energy efficiency across all sectors;
- Reducing emissions from power generation;
- Electric vehicles;
- Carbon capture, utilisation and storage; and
- Use of hydrogen as an alternative energy source.
