Below you could find an extract from an extraordinary Speech by Masagos Zulkifli that he did few months ago.
“Since our independence, Singapore has pursued sustainable development on a long-term basis, never compromising our environment for economic growth. Mr Erik Solheim, Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme, cited us as a model for other countries.
Our pioneers had the foresight and gumption to plan long term even if critical measures were difficult and unpopular. Their steadfastness left us this liveable environment we enjoy today.
Pneumatic systems will transform waste collection, where sanitation workers won’t see our rubbish from end to end. We can continue to be proud of our living environment.
I hosted 150 international environmental scientists and UN officials last month. Many have never been to Singapore. They were amazed by how Singapore can be an urban, clean and green city, all at the same time - and always looking new!”
We are proud at IWPCA that PWC (Pneumatic Waste Collection) is part of Singapore’s sustainable development success.
