Sentosa aims to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2030. Renewable, sustainable road map

Singapore – Sentosa Island is famous for its golf courses, beaches and luxury hotels. But visitors will soon be able to enjoy another aspect of the island of entertainment – the nature of luxury and green initiatives – on biodiversity or an electric bus.

In the southern part of the island, the Sentosa Development Corporation (SCC), which manages the island, is releasing a series of measures aimed at eventually bringing greenhouse gas emissions to zero on the island by 2030.

These measures were outlined in a virtual press release on Friday morning (September 17).

He said the SDC will begin testing electric bus tests with ComfortDelGro bus next month. All public transport on the island is expected to be cut off by electricity by 2025. All SDC-owned cars will also be licensed for electric vehicles by 2030.

When SDC began providing boat services through Senova Kov Village in December, go itors can visit Sentasasa from the Southern Islands chain of Singapore.

Details such as ticket costs are still being processed and will be released later, SDC said. Today, people can visit islands such as Cusu or St. John’s by the Marina South Pierre.

Gob said visitors will start their first visit in December to enhance their appreciation of nature, biodiversity and heritage in Santos.

Next year, Santos businesses will be offering green options for meetings, incentives, meetings and exhibitions as well as wedding packages. They include electric transportation, disposal, and locally produced food products.

These is the island of These are some of the plans that SDC has planned to launch a road map in Senosa Sustainability to determine how to achieve net zero emissions by 2030.

Sentosa’s goal is set by Singapore’s Green Plan 2030, designed earlier this year, to reduce the country’s carbon footprint.

All businesses and entities on the island of Santos produce about 162,000 tons of emissions annually. This In 2017, Singapore accounted for about 0.3 percent of the total emissions, up from 52.5 million tons of greenhouse gases that year.

According to SDC CEO Tian Quinn Eng, all sustainability efforts, big or small, are important. He added: “If we can get this right, we think we need to move forward in the Santos community to develop collective action and innovative solutions.”

“Tentosa is Singapore’s microcosm, and the country’s contribution to global emissions is also 0.11 percent,” she said. But we do not hide responsibility – I think everyone should take responsibility for their place in the environment and their ability to influence.

Today, climate change is a major driver of fossil fuels, as it releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

A.D. Part of Senososa’s plan to achieve carbon-neutrality by 2030 is to use more renewable energy sources by tapping unused marine and terrestrial resources on the island, including solar and storm power. There are also plans for waste-to-energy systems that use vegetable and fruit waste to generate electricity.

In Singapore Street – the installation of solar panels on the ocean – the habitat of exotic marine creatures such as oysters and dolphins that can be seen to breathe – could affect wildlife, she said. Community.

He added: “Sustainability is the main thing we do, so it cannot be done at the expense of other things. We will take precautionary measures to determine if the space is suitable. ”

Senosa aims to achieve the goal of net zero emissions by 2030, mainly by generating electricity for public transport vehicles and making buildings more energy efficient, but does not preclude the purchase of carbon credits to compensate for inconsistent emissions, Mr Tien said.

Asked if these initiatives would be costly for visitors, SDC Planning Director Lee Cheh Hissen said some solar technologies, such as solar panels, are already commercially viable. He pointed out that there may be a cost constraint for other technologies, but this can be overcome by using economics.

Gavin Weitman, general manager of the Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Hotel, said the new Sentosa business link, which aims to increase carbon neutrality on the island, will help increase the purchasing power of the island’s businesses.

Launched at the event on Friday, the new Sentosa carbon neutral network, consisting of 17 founding members, including SDC, Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa and Resorts World Sentosa, accounts for more than 90 percent of the island’s estimated carbon emissions.

The purpose of the network is to drive resources and expertise to drive Senosa-wide sustainable solutions, as well as to promote large-scale economies and large-scale network solutions.

Mr. Wetman added, “If we go to the market in groups … we can help those small island partners, so that they can benefit from it.”
