In 2020, European Chamber of Commerce (Singapore) embraced the topic of Sustainability as our main focus of activities for the year. In doing so, we acknowledged that a rapidly changing climate represents a potent, unprecedented and irreversible threat to habitats, societies and economies around the globe.
Singapore’s commitments and aspirations pursuant to the 2015 Paris Agreement are supported by European companies, particularly in the strategic areas common both to the European Union (EU) Commission’s European Green Deal and Singapore’s Sustainability Concept Plan. These are the topics of focus for the wider ‘European Excellence in Sustainability’ programme to which this Whitebook belongs.
The ‘European Excellence in Sustainability’ programme covers the five areas of:
- Circular Economy
- Smart Mobility
- Clean & Efficient Energy
- Sustainable Food & Nutrition
- Green Finance
