Getting Started on Sustainability

For businesses starting out on their sustainability journey, benchmarking is one way to qualify sustainability indicators and compare with peers. This will help to establish baselines, define industry best practices, identify risks and opportunities, and create a competitive environment within the organisation.

To support businesses in measuring their carbon footprint, SEC has incorporated a carbon calculator as part of the programme offering. Parameters for the calculation will include water, waste, electricity, material use, and other parameters. This will serve as the benchmark for businesses to review and reduce their cumulative emissions generated over the years.

Eco Certifications

Eco Certifications help guide offices, retail shops, as well as food establishments in the adoption of environmentally sustainable practices, manage waste, and adopt green practices in their daily operations. With Singapore being a regional hub for Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) events, there is also a certification that aims to bring event organisers on board the sustainability journey


GreenDNA Programme

GreenDNA is a certification system by the Singapore Environment Council (SEC), a UNEP-recognised organisation, that encodes green practices into the DNA of organisations and individuals, to adopt a Low Carbon Lifestyle, incorporating a green mindset of using One Less, and practising Responsible Consumption & Production, for effective changes in green resource management and business processes, advocating a circular economy to fight global climate crisis.
