KUALA LUMPUR: There should be more participation from companies across all industries in the Prime Minister’s Hibiscus Awards (PMHA) – the premier private sector award for green and sustainable efforts, says organising committee chairman Tan Sri Mustafa Mansur.
“Past cycles of the award have drawn strong and increasing response from the oil and gas, electronics and chemical industries.
“We look forward to more entries from the construction, plantation and manufacturing sectors as well as small and medium enterprises.”
It was opened by Natural Resources and Environment Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Dr James Dawos Mamit.
“What this award does is to give corporations an opportunity to be evaluated on their sustainable practices and to be benchmarked against the best in the industry.
“The award is to encourage business and industry members to be proactive in environmental management and performance,” he added.
The Shell Refining Company (FOM) Bhd, which won the 2012/2013 PMHA Challenge Trophy, made a presentation on best practices, followed by a briefing for company executives interested in participating in the new cycle.
Registration for the award should be sent in by Nov 28. Submission of participation is on Feb 28, 2015.
The Star was awarded the inaugural Environmental Journalism Award for 2012/2013.
Details of the award and entry forms are available at www.hibiscusaward.com.
