Established in 1995, the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) enables businesses in their sustainability journeys through its globally recognised environmental certification programme under the Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN).

In line with the national targets outlined in the SG Green Plan 2030, SEC focuses on raising public awareness on sustainability issues and fosters capability and capacity building through Public Private People (3Ps) partnership. As a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation (NGO), SEC is approved under the Institution of Public Character (IPC), which extends tax exemption to donors.

Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS)

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. To date, SEC has certified 3,700 products from 830 companies with more than 13,000 Green Label certifications.

SEC certified products are marketed in more than 50 countries, including Malaysia, Indonesia, China and the United States. It is an affirmation of its credibility among stakeholders. Application for the Singapore Green Label is open to local and foreign companies.
