Set up in 1972, the mission of the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) is to provide Singaporeans with a quality living environment and a high standard of public health, protected against the spread of communicable diseases.
Having performed well and achieved a clean and green living environment, MEWR aims to move from maintaining good environmental performance in the short term to achieving environmental sustainability in the long term. Together with its two statutory boards, the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Public Utilities Board (PUB), this can be accomplished through continued innovation in managing Singapore's limited resources, and vibrant partnerships and co-operations across the 3P sectors - private, public and people - crucial in meeting Singapore's environmental sustainability challenges.
A clean environment. Water for all. Together, a sustainable Singapore.
To deliver and sustain a clean and healthy environment and water resources for all in Singapore.
