The search is on for Eastern Cape’s greenest organisation

The prestigious Eastern Cape Top Green Organisation Awards is open! Organisations operating in the province are encouraged to enter and flex their green mettle. The awards programme, which aims to promote responsible environmental management is organised by the Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa (IWMSA) and the Eastern Cape Department of Economic Development, Environmental Affairs & Tourism.

The biennial Eastern Cape Top Green Organisation Awards is an opportunity for organisations to be recognised for their positive achievements in environmental and waste management.

“Businesses that comply with legislation governing environmental management compliance and green economy initiatives are urged to enter – it is a wonderful opportunity for organisations to showcase their achievements and innovation,” says Nomakhwezi Nota, Vice-Chair of the IWMSA Eastern Cape Branch, responsible for the Awards portfolio.

Entries for the Awards close on 30 September 2016 and all organisations stand a chance of being recognised for their green contributions. Categories include:

  • Small Organisations: 1 – 100 employees
  • Medium Organisations: Between 101 – 500 employees
  • Large Organisations: More than 500 employees

The entrants will be shortlisted and audited by professional members of the IWMSA and the Provincial Department to determine winners. These winning organisations will be announced at a gala dinner in November.

“The Top Green Organisation Awards is a great platform to honour the positive contributions in environmental management within the Eastern Cape Province. We are very excited to be working with the Provincial Department on this programme,” says Jan Palm, President of the IWMSA.

“The Eastern Cape Branch of the IWMSA looks forward to another fruitful Awards season – let’s stand together and be recognised as an environmentally conscious province,” concludes Nota.
