Hey Ella, have you ever thought how Singapore could be included in one of the most sustainable countries?
Actually, yes. I have the answer right in my hands. Well… a few years ago… around the 1970s and 1980s.
What happened in the 1970s?
Something incredible but brings a bad impact happens in Singapore.
Singapore had a rapid economic growth
What did the government do?
I am not finished Jessica! Let me continue. Not only rapid economic growth happened, but air and water pollution began to increase too.
Here’s the good part. After that happened, Singapore started to limit air pollution, and closely monitor oil refineries and petrochemical complexes and limit the sulfur content of fuel oil for power plants, factories, and diesel motor vehicles.
And now, Singapore was one of the most sustainable cities.
