Singapore's Long-Term Low-Emissions Development Strategy

Unread post by escveritas »

The Singapores Long-Term Low-Emissions Development Strategy (LEDS) document titled “Charting Singapore’s Low-Carbon and Climate Resilient Future”, builds on the enhanced NDC’s target by aspiring to halve Singapore's emissions from its peak to 33Mt CO2 equivalent by 2050, with a view to achieving net zero emissions as soon as viable in the second half of the century.

To enable Singapore’s low-carbon transition, the LEDS will have three thrusts:

a. Transformations in industry, economy and society, e.g. more renewable energy, greater energy efficiency, reducing energy consumption;

b. Adoption of advanced low-carbon technologies, e.g. carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS), and use of low-carbon fuels; and

c. Effective international collaboration, e.g. international climate action, regional power grids, market-based mechanisms.

The document represents an important next step in Singapore’s planning towards a low-carbon future. By setting out the vision well in advance, Singapore aims to provide a clear sense of direction, to give the nation and their stakeholders the time to effect a well-managed transition to a low-carbon economy. This will also allow Singapore to grow new sectors in their economy, and create new jobs and economic opportunities.
