Singapore's Emissions Profile

Singapore contributes around 0.11% of global emissions. We are nevertheless taking steps to reduce our carbon emissions.

Historically, our strategic position along the East-West trade routes has made Singapore a natural location for oil storage and refining facilities serving the region. Building on our position as a key regional port, the refining and petrochemical plants help create synergies and are part of a business supply network in Southeast Asia, the Western Pacific, South Asia and Australasia. Although, the refining and petrochemical sector is a large source of our carbon emissions, Singapore is working on an on-going and continuous basis to improve our levels of energy efficiency.

Carbon Intensity (Emissions per $GDP)

Singapore ranks 126th of 142 countries in terms of CO2 emissions per dollar GDP, based on International Energy Agency (IEA) data.
