industry

Participation is open to all industrial and services sectors. Within each industry and service group, there will be 2 categories of participants:

  • Large Enterprises

  • SMEs

This categorisation levels the playing field and eliminates disparate comparison between industries. The categories are determined by the participating companies' paid-up capital and manpower size:

Large Enterprises (LE)

  1. Manufacturing (including Agro - Based) & Manufacturing - Related Services

    Companies with full time employees exceeding 200 and with annual sales turnover exceeding RM50 million.

  2. Service Sector (including ICT)

    Companies with full time employees exceeding 75 and with annual sales turnover exceeding RM20 million.

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)

  1. Manufacturing (including Agro - Based) & Manufacturing - Related Services

    Companies with full time employees not exceeding 200 or with annual sales turnover not exceeding RM50 million.

  2. Service Sector (including ICT)

    Companies with full time employees not exceeding 75 or with annual sales turnover not exceeding RM20 million.


JOURNALISM AWARD

In recognition of the fundamental role of the media in sustainable development, the Prime Minister’s Hibiscus Award (PMHA) inaugurated the Environmental Journalism Award in its 2012/2013 cycle. 

The Environmental Journalism Award will be conferred once every two years in conjunction with the presentation of the PMHA which is held biennially. 

The Environmental Journalism Award is presented to the print media organisation that has made major contributions towards the understanding of environmental sustainability and a significant impact on public and policy sentiment. It seeks to enhance the quality and integrity of media coverage of environmental issues to a level that would encourage the public, the consumer and the corporate sector to take further affirmative action towards sustainability.

This is in line with PMHA’s concept which recognises companies and businesses for their accomplishments and leadership in environmental sustainability.
