Advancing Knowledge in Environmental Sustainability
Singapore Environment Institute (SEI) is the training and knowledge division of the National Environment Agency (NEA). Within NEA, SEI distils and documents the knowledge residing with experienced staff, as well as knowledge from other relevant sources, for transfer to the next generation of officers via its training programmes. The Institute also develops and up-skills the local industry’s manpower capabilities, thereby adding value to Singapore’s environmental arena. SEI’s public lectures feature renowned environmental speakers who catalyse thought leadership and foster communities of best practices. SEI’s collaborations with, and strong support from industry, academic and government organisations, are instrumental to its goal of ‘Advancing Knowledge in Environmental Sustainability’.

Issue6sENVISION Issue 6: Strengthening the Green Economy
Recent years have seen interconnected environmental and economic predicaments shift the discourse on growth and its implications. Concepts like green economy have emerged and received political and business traction. But how much of these are merely green visions versus reality? ENVISION Issue 6 features many case studies of technology, best practices, systems, and policies that are taking shape in this avenue. Renewable energy technologies are gaining ground, and governments and businesses are transforming their value chains and cutting energy consumption. Singapore too, is making inroads in areas like energy efficiency and green buildings. There is increasing interest in the so-called ‘circular economy’ which aims to loop in linear industries that currently wreak environmental destruction through their externalities. On a planet with seven billion people, major transformations are not an overnight affair. However, the developments we see in ENVISION Issue 6, alongside many others globally, may signal paradigm shifts in the ways our economies work. As Dr Martin Shaw put it, “A lot of opportunity is going to arrive in the next 20 years disguised as loss.” Whether it is through a green economy or something entirely new that emerges from such beginnings, those who are prepared will prosper.

With growing environmental threats and challenges to major global cities, governments and communities are increasingly working together to help find solutions. One aspect of this involves tapping the expertise of the “crowd” to spur unconventional, rapid and innovative solutions.  With governments and industry allowing public access to environmental data and involving them in consultative design processes, the opportunity for synergy emerges.  Practitioners of all backgrounds are increasingly empowered by leveraging phenomena such as big data, new sensing and analytics systems, as well as technology applications.  The fifth issue of ENVISION includes features on environmental data analytics, the latest technology, new tools being developed for industry and within government, how crowdsourcing is helping to change environmental outcomes, a guide to environmental apps, as well as inspiring environmental case studies from Singapore and beyond.

NEA-CLC Urban Systems Studies Booklet
‘Sustainable Environment: Balancing Growth with the Environment’
Co-produced by NEA and the Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC), this fourth publication under the Urban Systems Studies (USS) Booklet Series, presents a historical account of the environmental and economic policy objectives, including the trade-offs required and the implementation of adaptive environmental policy to meet changing economic demands.
