North West Green Sustainability Report

May 06, 2017

North West CDC launched the Green Living @ NW Sustainability Report (SR) on Saturday, 6 May 2017 with Host Mayor Dr Teo Ho Pin and GOH Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources. The SR will track sustainability efforts in the North West District.

With the SR, North West CDC hopes to encourage greater environmental ownership in the community and inspire more residents to embrace green living. This is in line with the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint (SSB) 2015, which highlighted one key ingredient for a sustainable Singapore – an Active and Gracious Community and the importance of collective effort by a committed Government, forward-looking industry partners, and an active civic society.

The Green Living @ NW SR is the first produced by a CDC in Singapore, detailing community green efforts in North West District. Prepared with reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, the SR summarises the progress of North West CDC’s Green Living @ NW initiatives since the inception of the 10-Year Eco Plan in 2009. The SR will also measures the impact Green Living @ NW on the community and assesses North West CDC’s future sustainability plans.
