Biodiversity Impact Assessment (BIA) guidelines

The BIA guidelines provides reference for developers and industry professionals to understand the common requirements for the biodiversity component of an EIA. Please click here to find out more.


Skyrise Greenery Incentive Scheme (SGIS)

As Singapore has limited land space, skyrise greenery is a new dimension of integrating greenery into our urban environment. To help owners implement skyrise greenery in their existing buildings, we have introduced the Skyrise Greenery Incentive Scheme (SGIS). Under this scheme, NParks will fund up to 50% of installation costs for green roofs and vertical greenery. Please click here to find out more.


Bird-Safe Building Guidelines

We have developed a set of Bird-Safe Building guidelines aimed at reducing bird-building collisions to safeguard resident and migratory birds that pass through Singapore. The guidelines are based on successful examples from other cities, such as Chicago, San Francisco and Toronto; and are targeted at building managers, architects and developers to encourage them to incorporate biophilic design principles into both existing and new developments that will minimise the likelihood of birds colliding into their buildings.


Landscape Excellence Assessment Framework (LEAF)

The Landscape Excellence Assessment Framework (LEAF) is a certification scheme to recognize development projects (existing and new) with outstanding greenery. The LEAF logo can be used for marketing purposes, and for project owners and team members, it is a recognition of excellence in efforts and professionalism towards high quality urban landscapes.
