Singapore and Chile will work on a legally binding implementation deal that outlines a bilateral framework for the international transfer of correspondingly adjusted carbon credits.

When completed, carbon tax-liable firms in Singapore can purchase carbon credits from eligible projects to offset up to 5% of their taxable emissions.

The MOU was signed by Trade and Industry Permanent Secretary (Development) Beh Swan Gin, and Secretary General of Foreign Policy of Chile’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ambassador Alex Wetzig.
