Environmental Conservation Through Holistic Programmes

The SEC addresses environmental conservation and sustainable development through holistic programmes specially adapted and suited to corporations and the community.

  • The Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS) endorses industrial and consumer products that are produced in an environmentally-friendly manner. Started in 1992, it is Singapore’s foremost environmental standard and certification label.

    Application for the Singapore Green Label is open to both local and foreign companies. Details can be found here.


  • Launched in January 2017 in response to the absence of peatland and fire management, the enhanced Singapore Green Labelling Scheme for Pulp and Paper Products (SGLS+) requires companies to improve their peatland management and commit to the early detection and suppression of fires when they do occur. Companies must also comply with the existing requirements of zero-burning on their plantations.

    Further details can be found here.

  • In addition to guiding offices in implementing effective environmentally-friendly practices by increasing eco-consciousness among staff and helping organisations manage waste by reducing the usage of paper, water and electricity, Eco Office Certification provides them with new tools and approaches on greater focus on change management and driving behavioural changes amongst employees.

  • Eco Shop certification programme is aimed at encouraging retail business owners to fit out their shops in an environmentally sustainable manner and adopt green practices in their daily operations. Other than receiving recognition for their commitment to being green, retailers can also reduce their energy consumption and utility bills in the long run.

  • Eco F&B is a certification programme that assesses the environmental management system of a food establishment. It facilitates the adoption of environmentally-sustainable practices by addressing the establishment’s environmental policies, air quality, as well as its water, energy and waste management.

  • A regional hub for Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) events, there are hundreds of sporting events organised in Singapore annually. Our SEC Eco Events programme aims to bring event organisers on board the sustainability journey, by providing a report on the impact of environmental initiatives and certifying events which meet our sustainability criteria.
