Mr Leon Perera asked the Minister for Trade and Industry based on the definition of “sustainable products” in the Sustainable Jurong Island report, what is the expected change in output of non-sustainable products in Jurong Island from 2019 levels (i) by 2030 and (ii) by 2051.
Mr Gan Kim Yong: The Sustainable Jurong Island strategy aims to increase the output of sustainable products manufactured on Jurong Island to 1.5 times 2019 levels by 2030 and four times 2019 levels by 20501. This growth is expected to exceed that of all other products, as companies seize green growth opportunities and pursue their emissions targets.
Note(s) to Question No(s) 5:
1 Actual production levels will however depend on global demand, the feasibility of sustainable production pathways and the competitiveness of production in Singapore.
