NEA is first Singapore Public Agency to produce a Sustainability Report under The Global Reporting Initiative [Press Releases]
Singapore, 3 July 2012 – The National Environment Agency (NEA) is the first Singapore public agency to publish a Sustainability Report, written in line with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines. These guidelines highlight some of the key economic, environmental, social and governance parameters that an organisation espousing sustainability should report on. NEA achieved a “B” GRI checked sustainability report on its first attempt. The Sustainability Report was launched at the CEO Forum on Sustainability at the inaugural CleanEnviro Summit Singapore.
The Sustainability Report highlights NEA’s efforts in inculcating an eco-friendly culture within NEA and encouraging its staff to contribute back to the community. Some of NEA’s initiatives in environmental sustainability include the integration of green features such as solar panels and a rain harvesting system to irrigate the landscaping for NEA’s newest meteorological service facility along Kim Chuan Road; as well as championing the Public Sector Taking the Lead on Environmental Sustainability (PSTLES) initiative to reduce electricity and water consumption.
