The Cleaner Technology Centre is launching the 5th Edition of the Environment Award for Industry with the aim of acknowledging the contribution of industry in favour of sustainable development.
The aim of these awards is to give recognition to industries or organizations which, through their policies, practices and processes help bring about, social and economic development while reducing the impact of their operations on the environment.
Another aim of the awards is to act as a spur for more organizations to take measures in favour of the environment.
The environment award will be given in three categories: Category ‘A’ - Management Award for Sustainable Development; Category ‘B’ – Conservation Award for Sustainable Development; Category ‘C’ – Environment Protection Initiative Award for SMEs.
Applications close in September 2009 and will be assessed by a special committee consisting of experts from various sectors.
The winners in each category are awarded a specially commissioned trophy made by Mdina Glass and a certificate. The winners of Category ‘A’ will also be assisted to compete in the European Environment Award Programme run by the DG Environment of the European Commission.
