For the successful implementation of the Prime Minister’s Hibiscus Award, it is important for assessment procedures to be simple, clear, efficient and reflective of current trends in environmental management practices.
The assessment is carried out in two stages:
Stage I: Submission of a written questionnaire by the participating company.
The responses are evaluated against a set of criteria drawn up by the TC.
Stage II: Site visit to verify Stage 1 submission and the company’s environmental performance and commitment.
Participants short - listed for Stage II are required to provide additional facility information if necessary (e.g. site layout, history and etc) for the site visit. A team of not less than two members will assess each site.
The duration of each site visit would not exceed two days. At the end of the assessment, the assessors would debrief the participant on the site assessment, in accordance to the guidelines provided to the assessment team.
