SGBC Green Certification

Building owners and users are becoming increasingly more eco-savvy as they see the value in pursuing a green mindset and lifestyle. Green buildings reap tangible benefits: by saving building owners money through lower energy costs and by achieving an improved quality of life for building users through higher environmental standards. This has prompted a significant increase in the demand for green products and services. Businesses need to respond to this change in consumer demand by placing greater emphasis on the environmental impact of their operations and product performance.

Championing sustainability in the built environment, SGBC has developed certification schemes to raise the environmental standards of building products and services, and to provide benchmarks on environmental performance of products and services. SGBC launched the Singapore Green Building Product (SGBP) certification scheme in 2010 and following its success, went on to launch the services certification scheme - the Singapore Green Building Services (SGBS) certification in 2012. SGBC is the owner of the SGBP and SGBS certification schemes.

With these certification schemes, SGBC aims to guide product development in the building industry, make green building products and services more readily available, and create an impact to the buildings that shape our living environment.

SGBC’s wholly owned subsidiary, SGBC Pte Ltd, is the certification body responsible for the evaluation of SGBP applications. As the certification body, SGBC Pte Ltd and its employees understand the importance of impartiality in carrying out its certification activities, and is dedicated to maintain the utmost impartiality in all certification activities. SGBC Pte Ltd conducts risk assessment on impartiality and conflicts of interest in order to identify potential risk and makes sure they are minimised or eliminated.
