Business and industrial sectors are principal sources of investment and drivers of economic growth and are rightfully the key players in ensuring sustainability in environmental management.
This Award presents an opportunity for public recognition of business and industry's environmental accomplishment and leadership and serves to create environmental awareness amongst enterprises that have yet to demonstrate environmental stewardship.
The Award will assist enterprises in identifying areas for improvement in environmental management for these industries. Indirectly, this initiative facilitates capacity building and development of partnerships to meet increasingly stringent environmental requirements and global environmental challenges.
The specific objectives of the Award are to:
Provide business and industry with the opportunity of an independent evaluation of their environmental commitment, management and performance
Stimulate business and industry initiatives by encouraging them to assume a proactive role in environmental management practices
Recognise the achievements of participating organisations as exemplary model for others to emulate.
