Singapore, April 23, 2018: Singapore Environment Council (SEC) has been awarded accreditation to the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment).

The accreditation means SEC can participate in the work of UN Environment’s governing bodies, such as the United Nations Environment Assembly1 (UNEA) – the world's highestlevel decision-making body on the environment – as well as the Committee of Permanent Representatives.

As Singapore’s first UN-accredited non-government environmental organisation, SEC will use its expertise and scientific knowledge to inform the world of Singapore’s needs and opinions on environmental matters, in addition to playing a role in UN Environment’s policy decisions.

The accreditation comes after a six-month evaluation by UN Environment, including SEC’s ability to promote environmental causes in both Singapore and neighbouring countries.

The Chairman of SEC, Ms Isabella Loh said accreditation to UN Environment is a major milestone for the organisation.
