About Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS)
Administered by the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) since 1999, the Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS) is Singapore’s leading environmental standard and certification mark with over 3800 unique products certified across 43 countries. The scheme aims to help the public identify environmentally preferred products that meet certain eco-standards.
The Singapore Green Label is a Type 1 Ecolabel. A Type 1 Ecolabel is independently verified by third party based on the life cycle considerations. It addresses the main environmental impacts of a given product and places limits for compliancy in order to reduce these impacts. In order to certify a product under the SGLS, a product must be placed under one of the SGLS product categories and meet all the requirements for the specified product category.
The scheme’s high certification standards 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 ecolabels. The SEC is the only eco-labelling body in Singapore that is a member of the Global Eco-Labelling Network (GEN).
