Ensuring a Clean and Sustainable Environment for Singapore
High Standards of Public Health
As the national authority on environmental public health standards in Singapore, NEA undertakes a critical role to maintain these standards through research, ground surveillance, enforcement, licensing and outreach.
Safe, Healthy and Conducive Living Environment
NEA enforces strict regulations in line with international standards to limit emissions, and implements various initiatives to monitor, prevent and mitigate environmental pollution and radiation. NEA plays a pivotal role to sustain clean air, good water quality and quieter surroundings for all Singaporeans.
Sustainable and Resource Efficient Singapore
With Singapore’s limited land and dense urban population, NEA prioritises the effective and targeted management of our respective waste streams as we progress towards a Zero Waste vision and circular economy, contributing to the Singapore Green Plan 2030.
Timely and Reliable Weather and Climate Services
Situated one degree north of the equator, Singapore’s tropical climate presents its own unique set of environmental challenges. To prepare for the effects of climate change, NEA’s Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) provides reliable and responsive weather and climate services, towards greater public safety and a climate resilient economy.
Vibrant Hawker Culture
Hawker centre dining is truly an integral part of Singapore’s culture. As a natural extension of this culture, hawker centres have become time-tested institutions that serve as important places for community bonding in the heartlands.
