Asia is Green new logo

Asia’s bright green future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed.

Asia is Green first started in 2007 as a green resource guide for Singapore and Asia. We are revamping the site in Oct 2013 with a new focus on Asia’s bright green future.

Asia is Green is now an online publication focusing on sustainability solutions, ideas, technologies, tools, models, policies and trends in Asia. We hope to inspire and empower readers in Asia and around the world to share, participate and build Asia’s bright green future.

The environmental situation in Asia is not all doom and gloom. There are individuals, businesses, organisations and governments in Asia with ideas and taking action on sustainability. We hope to share these solutions, ideas and stories with our readers.

We believe in positive and solutions-based reporting, and yes, we are huge fans of Worldchanging and Alex Steffen.

Check out the revamped Asia is Green now!
