Mr Leon Perera asked the Minister for Sustainability and the Environment whether the Government will disclose public sector Scope 3 emissions under the GreenGov.SG initiative.
The Minister for Sustainability and the Environment (Ms Grace Fu Hai Yien): Mr Deputy Speaker, we are not requiring disclosure of Scope 3 emissions at this stage of implementing our reporting framework. We will refine our framework as we strive to reduce our emissions and develop greater capability within the public service for tracking and reporting.
Mr Deputy Speaker: Mr Leon Perera.
Mr Leon Perera (Aljunied): I thank the Minister for her replies. Is there a timeline within which the Government will be looking to consider introducing reporting of Scope 3 emissions, because the Minister mentioned that this is going to be reviewed progressively.
Ms Grace Fu Hai Yien: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. I would like to speak more about this topic in the upcoming Committee of Supply (COS) debate. At this point in time, just like to reiterate that we are not requiring disclosure of Scope 3 emissions.
