“NUS is honoured to be recognised with the President’s Award for the Environment, which affirms our whole-of-University approach in championing sustainability,” NUS President Professor Tan Eng Chye said, “As Singapore’s flagship university, we are committed to advancing sustainable development in the areas of education, research, innovation, and campus operations. The University is a vibrant living laboratory where we drive sustainable solutions, and translate research and knowledge into tangible outcomes, shaping the future of sustainability in Singapore.”


For over two decades, NUS has been steadfast in its pursuit of environmental sustainability, dedicated to driving progress in sustainable development, and in playing an active role in the fight against climate change. Drawn up in parallel with the Singapore Green Plan 2030, the Campus Sustainability Roadmap 2030 outlines NUS’ long-term strategic goals towards becoming a carbon neutral, climate resilient and zero waste campus. The University’s sustainability targets in the roadmap are aligned with, or exceed, the goals laid out in the GreenGov.SG initiative. Some of the notable targets include:

  • Reducing NUS’ campus Scope 1 and Scope 2 absolute carbon emissions by 30 per cent, and purchase quality carbon offsets as a last resort;
  • Reducing energy usage intensity by 20 per cent;
  • Improving outdoor thermal comfort; and
  • Planting 100,000 trees by 2030.
