- Alora Paints is Singapore’s first and only paint company to be Carbon Neutral Certified through SCS Global, a leader in sustainability standards and third-party certification.
- The award recognizes Alora’s environmental and carbon offsetting commitments.
- Alora purchases United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change offsets and is a gold-level participant in the entity’s Climate Neutral Now initiative.
- The company has also earned the S. Green Seal and Singapore Green Label status.
Alora Paints is the first and only paint company in Singapore to be Carbon Neutral Certified by SCS Global, a leading third-party certification party with rigorous sustainability standards. To earn certification, Alora completed a carbon footprint inventory covering Scopes 1, 2 and 3 of the international Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol.
Alora manufactures its paints in a carbon-neutral factory and invests in carbon offset projects through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The company will soon recognize as a gold-level participant in UNFCCC’s Climate Neutral Now campaign. Launched in 2015 by the UNFCCC secretariat, Climate Neutral Now encourages voluntary climate action by governments, companies, organizations and individuals.
“To be named Carbon Neutral Certified and soon to be recognized Climate Neutral Now gold status, Alora voluntarily evaluated and offset its emissions across several categories, including electricity generation, industrial processing, wastewater and business travel. We’re proud to proactively support a more sustainable world," says Alora Paints Chief Executive Officer Adrian Kok.
Earlier this year, Alora earned U.S. Green Seal certification by meeting strict performance standards and creating products that prioritize human health and the environment. The certification means that projects using Alora paints now qualify for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points. Alora also received Singapore Green Label (SGL) status from the Singapore Environment Council. The label is widely recognised by regional ministries, governmental agencies, procurement professionals and industry members.
“Though Alora is a start-up paint company, we are fully committed to being environmentally responsible with our products and our carbon footprint. We know that sustainability matters to the homeowners, architects and applicators who purchase our paint. Alora’s environmental foundations demonstrate that we are here for the long term,” says Kok.
