KUCHING: The Chief Minister’s Environmental Award (CMEA) 2017/2018 is back for its eighth year with the award presentation ceremony expected to be held this November.

CMEA Technical Committee chairman Prof Dr Lau Seng said this year’s categories have been streamlined into seven major sectors, led by the five main economic sectors in accordance with the State and National Economic Definitions.

“Other categories will be based on the Local Authority Sector and the Individuals which comprised of the Individual & Journalist category, and an addition category for Eateries (food outlets), which have been specifically customised for CMEA,” he said when conducting a briefing on the criteria and reporting format to potential participants of the 8th CMEA at a hotel here today.

The briefing is the first of three CMEA roadshows to be held statewide. The next roadshows will be held in Mukah on May 3 followed by Miri on May 15.

Jointly organised by the Natural Resources and Environment Board (NREB) Sarawak and Sarawak Business Federation (SBF), CMEA aims at recognising the environmental effort and commitment of industries, local authorities and individuals, which demonstrate exemplary stewardship towards environmental protection.

Winners of the award are wildly recognised by the public as role models in business and industry’s environmental performance and excellence as well as models for environmental conservation and practices.

This year’s Champions and Gold Award winners will receive a trophy and certificate of participation for Champion; a plaque and certificate of participation for Gold Award winner; eligibility to use the award’s logo for publicity purposes; recognition as an exemplary organisation committed to environmental protection; and a 50 per cent discount for course fees for one environmental protection/awareness programme organised by the NREB for three persons.
