Increasing demand for sustainable products and services in S'pore attracts entrepreneurs

Quick Summary

June 23, 2022 6:04 PMSINGAPORE - Food-based entrepreneurs and start-ups are sprouting up all over Singapore as the demand for sustainable products and services goes into overdrive.

As Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu noted earlier this month, if consumers avoid disposables, buy locally farmed vegetables and fish and choose energy-efficient appliances, these choices will create ripple effects that accelerate the development of more sustainable products.

As Singapore accelerates sustainable development with the Green Plan 2030 agenda, there is significant funding channelling into decarbonisation and the circular economy that attracts start-ups, she added.
