JOINT NEWS RELEASE BETWEEN NEA, PUB AND SFA
Singapore, 31 March 2021 – A new version of the myENV mobile app which provides a one-stop mobile platform for integrated information on our environment, water services and food safety has been launched today. It integrates information from the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE) family statutory boards – the National Environment Agency (NEA), National Water Agency PUB, and Singapore Food Agency (SFA) - to provide users with real-time content through a unified interface.
