TOPIC: Low Carbon Economy and Net Zero Future


The world is pledging to achieve net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases. The world’s 50% of the greenhouse gases are released from rich countries such as USA, Canada, Japan and much of the Western Europe which account for only 12% of the world’s population. Low carbon economy is the way forward to enable successful transition to net zero emissions in the future this will help to minimize the global warming/climate change effect. Singapore is committed to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 through by adopting low carbon practices in industry and society. Carbon emissions are reduced by promoting more renewables in electricity generation, use less electricity and energy efficient devices. This keynote highlights Singapore’s net zero future strategy.
