The Singapore Green Labelling Scheme

Launched in May 1992 and administered by the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) since June 1999, the Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS) is Singapore's leading environmental standard and certification mark.

The SGLS is applicable to most products except food, drinks and pharmaceuticals. Green Label products include items produced locally or internationally that have been evaluated through stringent standards.

Green Label certified products have become a competitive advantage for companies, marketable and readily accepted by consumers or business associates in making their purchasing decisions.

SEC is recognised as a member of the Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN), an association of third-party, environmental performance recognition, certification and labelling organisations to improve, promote, and develop the "ecolabelling" of products and services. The SGLS has been successfully audited by the GEN as meeting ISO 14024 and ISO Guide 65 standards for the GENICES accreditation in October 2011.

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

5 April 2013

The Singapore Environment Council has revised the Green Label product categories for Hygiene Paper, Stationery Paper and Printing Paper. The categories include product specific environmental health prerequisites based on lifecycle considerations, such as reduced toxicity, sustainable sourcing of raw materials and/or recycled content, minimised production waste and increased energy efficiency.

The Singapore Environment Council has also released a new Green Label category for Oxo-biodegradable Plastic Products. The category establishes criteria on environmental and health parameters for oxo-biodegradable polypropylene and polyethylene products that degrade and biodegrade in the open environment owing to the inclusion of a pro-degradant additive during manufacture, and is expected to produce benefits such as reduced eco-toxicity and reduced toxicity to humans.
