Overview

The Singapore Environment Council (SEC) was established in 1995 as an independently managed, non-profit, non-governmental organisation (NGO). We are the only recognised member of the Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN) in Singapore. The GEN is a non-profit association of leading eco labelling organisation worldwide. In 2018, SEC was granted United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) accredited environmental NGO status. We influence thinking on sustainability issues and coordinate environmental efforts in Singapore and the region. We are an approved Institution of Public Character (IPC) with tax exemption status to donors.

SEC continuously engages all sectors of the community by formulating and executing a range of holistic programmes, such as the Singapore Environmental Achievement Awards, Asian Environmental Journalism Awards, School Green Awards, Singapore Green Labelling Scheme, Eco-Office, Eco-Shop, Eco-F&B and Eco-Events. In addition, we continue to build a pool of committed volunteers under our Earth Helpers programme.
Our Training and Education arm provides the people, public and private sectors with the opportunity to develop awareness, knowledge, skills and tools to protect and improve our environment for a sustainable future.

We value strong partnerships with corporations, government agencies and other NGOs. These partnerships are vital for sustaining our programmes and we believe can lead to positive action and change. Over the years, SEC has given strength and direction to the environmental movement in Singapore.
