Building from Sustainable Products


Aligned with the World Green Building Council’s vision of green buildings for everyone, everywhere, the Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC) aims to make the spaces we live, work and play in healthier, more sustainable, and more resource-efficient. In order to advance Singapore’s built environment to one that is greener and more carbon efficient, SGBC administers the Singapore Green Building Product (SGBP) certification scheme to recognise green building products and facilitate sustainable procurement.

The SGBP certification scheme is developed based on scientific and engineering principles that is built upon the collective knowledge and expertise of the building and construction industry. The scheme advances the built environment to one that is greener and more carbon-efficient while facilitating sustainable procurement. It helps to ensure that sustainability targets are met while providing transparency and credibility to the products we choose to use when building green into spaces and places.

SGBP Certification

While the Singapore Green Building Council is the owner of the SGBP certification scheme, its wholly owned subsidiary, SGBC Pte Ltd, is the certification body responsible for the evaluation of SGBP applications. Stakeholders may reach out to SGBC Pte Ltd at This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Information about the SGBP certification scheme, certification procedures and fee structures.
  • Procedures for granting, maintaining, extending or reducing the scope of, suspending, withdrawing or refusing certification.
  • Information related to the requirements, restrictions or limitations on the use of the SGBP mark, and methods to refer to the SGBP certification granted.
  • Information about procedures for handling complaints and appeals, as well as how to submit one.

 SGBP Recognition by other Green Building Rating Tools

The SGBP certification scheme is one of the key standards and benchmarks for green building products in the building and construction industry. Products and materials certified by the SGBP are highly recognised under the Green Mark Scheme, Singapore’s national green building rating tool administered by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA), which allows certified products to accrue points that count towards a project’s Green Mark rating. The more highly rated a product is under the SGBP Scheme (i.e., the more ticks it has achieved), the more points are awarded towards the Green Mark rating.

SGBP Certification Scheme is also widely accepted by regional green building rating tools for its coverage of product’s sustainability performance. Examples include GreenRE, a rating tool set up by the Real Estate & Housing Developments’ Association (REHDA) of Malaysia, and LOTUS, Vietnam Green Building Council’s rating tool. The SGBP complies with many of the requirements in ISO 14024 Environmental labels and declarations — Type I environmental labelling.

SGBC is always working to improve our SGBP’s quality and usability. The SGBP Certification Scheme is similar to internationally leading eco-labels, such as Cradle2Cradle, DECLARE, Global Green Tag, Good Environmental Choice Australia, Korea Environmental Industry and Technology Institute. Future versions of the SGBP may provide additional recognition for products that excel in addressing social issues, circular economy, and low embodied carbon, and reorganise the Scheme’s governance to allow for products certified under our Scheme to be recognised under other eco-labels.

Benefits of the SGBP Certification Scheme

Once a product is certified, SGBC Pte Ltd will issue the product a certificate. Only certified products will be listed on the SGBP Certification Interactive Directory, which is maintained on the Singapore Green Building Council’s website. This Interactive Directory is actively used by building industry professionals such as consultants, contractors, building developers and owners. Stakeholders can demand that products/ materials used for a building are SGBP certified. Certified products can gain credits under various green building rating tools.
