Alora Earns US Green Seal Certification

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2022


Last week, Alora Paints announced in a press release that it had recently become the first and only Singapore-based paint company to receive to U.S. Green Seal certification, a global environmental endorsement.

The recognition follows the company’s recent Singapore Green Label verification and allows Alora’s products to qualify for points toward all four levels of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

“Our dual U.S. Green Seal and Singapore Green Label certifications recognize Alora Paints’ ongoing commitment to offering healthier, high-performing, environmentally responsible paint,” said Alora Paints Chief Executive Officer Adrian Kok. “We’re proud to create a seamless, stress-free painting experience for both homeowners and professionals, while also taking steps to protect the health and safety of people and the planet.”

Reported to be a carbon-neutral company, Alora initially earned the U.S. Green Seal certification in August. According to the press release that followed earlier this month, Alora shared that its matte and satin finishes qualified for Green Seal’s GS-11 certification by meeting necessary performance standards.

The odorless, water-based paints contain no volatile organic compounds and tested very high for ease of application, splatter resistance, concealing and touch-up capabilities, and overall coverage. The coatings were also reported to excel in fade and scratch resistance, scrubability and washability.

Alora recently joined the United Nations’ Climate Neutral Now initiative, a voluntary effort to promote carbon neutrality and support global climate action.
