The arrow-shaped motifs represent the environment around us. They signify our responsiveness and effectiveness in addressing Singapore's environmental opportunities and challenges. The arrows also signify our continuous commitment to building a society with strong ownership of the environment.


The typeface is bold, signifying NEA's role in safeguarding the environment through high regulatory standards. Though bold, the font is reader-friendly, to demonstrate NEA’s increased emphasis towards community action, partnerships, and inclusiveness.


The shades of green represent Singapore’s clean environment with high public health standards, while the shades of blue represent NEA's foresight and commitment towards safeguarding the environment. Orange signifies the future generations’ optimism and enthusiasm towards environmental goals.
