Singapore Sustainability Training and Education Program

The Singapore Environment Council (SEC) has launched a sustainability training and education program for businesses and students. It will also provide companies with tools to start sustainability programs.

This initiative will meet the huge demand for such courses from the corporate sector, in addition to generating income for the non-governmental organisation.

The program was launched at the 17th Singapore Environmental Achievement Awards.

The program will reach out to businesses and students to advance their knowledge of sustainable issues such as recycling, waste and water management, and energy efficiency.

SEC will work with industry and academic experts to conduct courses and workshops for clients, and also develop a set of educational materials that companies can use to build capabilities amongst their staff.

To help make the program affordable to all, up to 90 per cent of the cost can be subsidized.

Established in 1995, the SEC is an independently managed, non-profit, non-government organisation, and institution of public character that nurtures, facilitates and co-ordinates environmental causes in Singapore. The Council is also an approved charity that can offer tax exemption to donors.

SEC reaches out to the public through its educational, community and industrial arms. Each arm provides a range of holistic programs that raises awareness of the natural environment and promotes a greater sense of environmental responsibility.
