SCS Global, a prominent third-party certification company with rigorous sustainability standards, has certified Alora Paints as the first and only paint company in Singapore to be Carbon Neutral. Alora got certified by doing an inventory of its carbon footprint that covered Scopes 1, 2, and 3 of the international Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol.

Alora makes its paints in a carbon-neutral factory and invests in projects that offset carbon through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The company will soon be recognised as a gold-level participant in the UNFCCC's Climate Neutral Now initiative. Climate Neutral Now, launched in 2015 by the UNFCCC secretariat, encourages voluntary climate action by governments, businesses, organisations, and individuals.

"To be named Carbon Neutral Certified and soon to be recognised 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.

Alora got the U.S. Green Seal earlier this year after meeting strict performance standards and making products that are good for people's health and the environment.

Projects that use Alora paints now qualify for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points. The Singapore Environment Council also granted Alora Singapore Green Label (SGL) accreditation. Regional ministries, governmental bodies, procurement professionals, and industry participants recognise the label.

"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.
