Circular cities: the case of Singapore
Governments everywhere are at the forefront of waste management moves. They continue to introduce, revise and tweak policies and regulations to facilitate progress towards sustainable packaging and recycling (e.g., improving existing recycling infrastructure, imposing a tax on packaging, introducing cost-sharing schemes and raising consumer awareness). This study examines the state of sustainable packaging in Singapore as we continue our evolution towards a circular economy. For perspective and a clearer idea of the problem, the study also examines schemes and policies countries like Germany and Netherlands have introduced.
