Singapore raises Water Efficiency Fund cap to $5m 

This is up from only $1m.

Singapore’s national water agency PUB has raised the funding cap under the Water Efficiency Fund to $5m, starting 1 July. 

This is an increase from the current $1m funding cap for water recycling projects. 

“Water conservation is increasingly becoming an integral part of companies’ operations and business sustainability strategy. By implementing water recycling and water efficient systems, companies can make an immediate impact and reduce their water demand, achieve cost savings, and strengthen their long-term competitiveness and resource resilience,” Ridzuan Ismail, Director of PUB’s Water Supply Network Department,” said.

“This will also ensure sustainable growth in long-term water demand in Singapore. The enhancement of WEF is yet another step that we are taking to support companies in their water conservation efforts, and safeguard our water future.”
