World's cleanest countries

THE first impression many visitors get once they arrive in Singapore is how clean the city is. But is it really? According to 2010 world environmental performance index (EPI), Singapore is not on the top 10 cleanest countries in the world. In fact, it ranked 28, just before Serbia and Montenegro, Ecuador and Peru. The EPI ranks countries based on 25 performance indicators tracked across 10 policy categories covering both environmental public health and ecosystem vitality. The country on top of the list was Iceland - which scored an EPI of 93.5 - followed by Switzerland, Costa Rica, Sweden and Norway. A reader from Stomp commented that Singapore has "room for improvement". "Singapore is a green country and the top 10 cleanest countries should act as our role models", wrote the reader.
