He added the number of entries for the 10th PSEA 2021/2022 increased by 36 per cent, from 106 participants for the ninth CMEA 2019/2020 to 144 entries.
“The initiative to organize this prestigious biennially Premier of Sarawak Environmental Award (PSEA) is to provide an avenue for the industries, businesses, local authorities, eateries and food outlets and the individuals to demonstrate their corporate environmental responsibility in showcasing their organisational green initiatives in reducing carbon footprints in their production processes and operations,” he said.
Abang Johari said the award also serves to create environmental awareness among enterprises that have yet to demonstrate stewardship and identify areas for improvement in environmental management.
