On 12 April 2006, Environment and Water Resources Minister Yaacob Ibrahim announced that Singapore had ratified the Kyoto Protocol to help tackle global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, Singapore is a non-Annex I party to the agreement and therefore is not legally bound to a specific emissions target. Singapore has established its own targets as part of its National Climate Change Strategy (NCCS). The country aims to reduce its carbon intensity by 25 percent compared to 1990 levels. In 2005, Singapore’s carbon intensity was at 22 percent below 1990 levels. The NCCS is part of a larger ten-year environmental initiative known as the Singapore Green Plan 2012. Aside from its GHG emissions targets, the government has set out to introduce energy efficiency labels for home appliances, reduce per capita water consumption, improve waste management services, and other goals.
