SINGAPORE ENVIRONMENT COUNCIL
Established in 1995, the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) is an independently managed, non-profit and non-government organisation (NGO). We influence thinking on sustainability issues and coordinate environmental efforts in Singapore.
We are also an approved charity and offer tax exemption to donors. SEC continuously engages all sectors of the community by formulating and executing a range of holistic programmes, such as the Singapore Environmental Achievement Awards, Asian Environmental Journalism Awards, School Green Awards, Singapore Green Labelling Scheme, Project: Eco-Office, Project: Eco-Shop and Project: F&B. In addition, we build a pool of committed volunteers under our Earth Helpers programme.
Our Training & Education arm provides the people, public and private sectors with the opportunity to develop awareness, knowledge, skills and tools in order to protect and improve our environment for a sustainable future.
Strong partnerships with corporations, government agencies and other NGOs are valued by us. These partnerships are vital for sustaining our programmes, leading to positive action and change. Over the years, SEC has given strength and direction to the environmental movement in Singapore.
Garden City Fund
Caring and conserving our marine biodiversity is the social responsibility of every individual.
The Garden City Fund's Plant-A-Coral programme is a platform for organisations and individuals to support the habitat enhancement efforts at the Sisters' Island Marine Park.
The programme aims to enhance our marine biodiversity by providing areas for marine organisms to grow and reef fish to seek refuge. Coral nubbins (small coral fragments) will be transplanted from a coral nursery to Reef Enhancement Units.
The donation will support conservation and research efforts including:
Marine Turtle Conservation Programme | Coral Reef Programme | Species Recovery Programme | Outreach and Education Programmes |
Other conservation programmes
