The Singapore Environment Council, an environmental non-profit, has appointed Bay Meng Yi as director for sustainability.

Bay joins the organisation with a brief to oversee SEC’s long-running Singapore Green Label Scheme, an environmental standard that certifies products as “green” in the city-state.

He will also oversee SEC’s other certification programmes such as Eco-Office, which helps workplaces better manage waste, and Eco-Shop, which is designed to reduce the environmental footprint of retailers.

He replaces Vincent Tan, who has moved on from the organisation, and comes on board after completing master’s degrees in sustainability management and public administration in the United States and China.

Bay’s appointment comes three months after Cheang Kok Chung was installed as SEC’s executive director. Chung replaced Hazri Hassan, who moved on from the top job after just two months in the role.

Bay has spent much of his career in government positions. He was previously senior assistant director, environmental protection policy for the National Environment Agency and special assistant to minister and policy officer at the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, now known as the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment. SEC was born out of the environment ministry in 1995. Bay also worked at NEA as an engineer.
