Eco – Certifications

Eco Certifications are a critical integral component of GreenDNA, an internationally recognised accreditation system that encourages organisations to adopt a Low Carbon Lifestyle, a green mindset of using One Less, and the practice of Responsible Consumption, rewarding them with internationally recognised carbon emissions reduction (CER) reports and the GreenDNA certificate of accreditation.

Our SEC’s Eco Certification Programmes

Eco-Office Certification has since guided 700 offices (click) in implementing effective environmentally-friendly practices by increasing eco-consciousness among staff. Our Eco Office programme help organisations manage waste by reducing usage of paper, water and electricity.

In December 2018, SEC launched the new Eco-Office Plus, an enhancement to the existing programme where applicants are provided with new tools and approaches to begin their certification journey. This includes greater focus on change management and driving behavioural changes amongst employees.

A tier system was also introduced to help companies improve over time, and to recognise their efforts and achievements. The tier categories are Eco-Office Premium, Professional, Champion and Elite. Offices are encouraged to move up the tiers as they progress. The top Elite category is awarded to offices that have achieved excellent environmental performance, and done well to spread the green message amongst employees.

Prior to certification, SEC engages and provides applicants with tools and information to work on their Office Environmental Guidelines via its “Eco-Office Plus Capability Building Programme”. After certification, SEC will continue on a yearly basis to guide companies on improving identified environmental gaps, through an Eco-Office Plus Health Check. Companies will also be able to connect with SEC via its Eco-Office Plus “E-Concierge Service” – a platform where SEC can help companies address environmental queries pertaining to their office environment.
