About CNA Green Plan

Mediacorp is committed to sustainability and the CNA Green Plan is yet another indication of that
commitment.

The CNA Green Plan Challenge will shine a spotlight on the key challenges Singapore faces due to climate change.
It aims to rally the nation to make the changes that will ensure a sustainable future for all of us. And it
hopes to do this by inspiring individuals to see where, in their day-to-day life, they can take the small steps to go
green.

The five pillars of the Singapore Green Plan 2030 will provide the framework for the CNA Green Plan Challenge.

Kickstart your green journey today!
