Started back in 1992 and administered by the SEC in 1999, the Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS) is Singapore’s foremost environmental standard and certification mark.  

With the exception of food, beverages and pharmaceuticals, this label is applied to products which have passed stringent standards of environmental processes and procedures. Products bearing the Green Label gain a competitive advantage as it increases consumer and industrial demand and awareness for green products and services. Customers buy Green Label products with the knowledge and confidence that the purchase is not at the expense of our environment.

As a recognised member of the Global Ecolabelling Network, SGLS has been successfully audited in October 2011 and found to comply with ISO 14024 and ISO Guide 65 standards for the Global Ecolabelling Network’s Internationally Coordinated Ecolabelling System (GENICES) accreditation.
