The Inter-Ministerial Committee on Sustainable Development (IMCSD) recently announced Singapore’s vision and initiatives for sustainable development, and is seeking public feedback and suggestions. The IMCSD is studying ways to be more sustainable in the way we Work, Commute, Live and Play.
In response to the call for green ideas, Green Future Solutions came up with 20 suggestions that would help Singapore to be more sustainable. Some suggestions include:
- Promote SEE Energy Management for the Industry and Building Sector
- Encourage Building Owners to Reduce Lightings at Night
- Work Towards a Four National Switches Energy Strategy
- Set Mandatory Energy Efficiency and Renewable Portfolio Standards
- Encourage Educational and Practical Opportunities on Redesign
- Set Targets for Reducing Packaging
- Introduce an Incentive Scheme for BYOB
- Introduce a National Waste Reuse Database
- Provide a National Food Matching Service
The 20 suggestions are compiled in a report and sent to the IMCSD Secretariat. To read the full content:
All events, big or small, use resources and have negative impacts on the environment. The planning, preparation and conducting of events tend to consume water, energy and materials, and produce waste and gas emissions. We understand that event organisers and venue managers would like to reduce their impacts on the environment and go green, but they are not sure how to start.
We have teamed up with ECO Singapore to produce the Green Events Guide. This Green Events Guide aims to provide a framework of principles and practical tips on how event and venue managers can start creating greener events by identifying and reducing the various environmental impacts in its process.
If you are organising an event or managing a venue for an event, we hope that you will take the first step in making the event green. The tips in the guide are not exhaustive but the more tips you implement, the greener is your event.
The following key areas are considered for a green event and are discussed in the Green Events Guide:
- Venue and Transport
- Food and Catering
- Energy and Water
- Materials and Waste
