About SGLS


The Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS) is administered by the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) and is one of the region’s largest and most established environmental certification labels. The SGLS was introduced in 1992 to drive environmental consciousness and responsibility by allowing consumers to choose products meeting eco-standards that are assessed to be “environmentally friendly”.

With a suite of over 70 product categories from paint & surface coatings, office furniture & flooring, to household appliances and personal care products, SEC has certified more than 3,000 unique products across 27 countries.

The scheme’s high certification standards has also motivate and empower manufacturers to adhere to international environmental best practices in their manufacturing process, and provide them with opportunities for regional expansion through a global network of eco-labels. The SEC is the only eco-labelling body in Singapore that is a member of the Global Eco labelling Network (GEN).

Application for the Singapore Green Label is open to both local and foreign companies.
