Singapore is a major refining and bunkering center and one of the world’s largest aviation hubs, but its latest worry is how to tackle its emissions, a task which will not be so straightforward.

The country’s oil sector contributes around 5 percent of GDP, placing Singapore amongst the top three export refiners globally. Combine this with a power sector almost wholly dependent on fossil fuels and Singapore unsurprisingly sits near the top of the Asia Pacific per capita carbon emissions table. Tackling its emissions will require massive levels of investment and innovation.
