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

Our enhanced Eco Office Certification has since guided 700 offices in implementing effective environmentally-friendly practices by increasing eco-consciousness among staff, which in turn helps organisations manage waste by reducing the usage of paper, water and electricity. Check out the latest list of Eco Office Certified companies here!

Launched in December 2018, the enhanced Eco Office programme provides applicants with new tools and approaches to begin their certification journey. This includes a 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 Enhanced Capability Building Programme”. After certification, SEC will continue on a yearly basis to guide companies on improving identified environmental gaps, through an Eco Office Health Check. Companies will also be able to connect with SEC via its Eco Office “E-Concierge Service” – a platform where SEC can help companies address environmental queries pertaining to their office environment.

Eco Shop

The 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 like our Eco Shop certified clients (click) can also reduce their energy consumption and utility bills in the long run.

The Eco Shop certification is based on a scoring system to evaluate the environmental performance of retail shops in the areas of Environmental Management & Awareness, Purchasing & Operations, Air Quality, Energy Conservation, Waste Management, and Water Conservation.

Reduce your shop’s resource consumption and achieve cost savings in the long run.

Eco F&B

The 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.

Operators learn how to further reduce their carbon footprint by incorporating environmentally-friendly measures into their business practices.

Eco F&B certified businesses enjoy benefits such as gaining consumers’ recognition for being civic-mindedness, saving on utilities/ paper consumption, using the eco-certification credentials (name cards, paper bags, shop fronts, marketing collaterals), reducing food wastage and cultivating a green culture organisation that customers can identify and relate to.

Be Eco F&B certified like these restaurants, eateries, cafes and other food establishments (click).
