Organisations can play a role in water saving in Penang by becoming water-friendly and earning rewards.
In 2009, the Penang State Government and PBAPP jointly launched the “Aqua Save” Programme to recognise water-friendly companies, industrial corporations, hotels, education centres, government departments and non-business organisations.
Organisations who participate in the programme will be evaluated on the amount of water savings achieved; initiatives and efforts related to water conservation; innovation and cost-effectiveness of technologies used; policies, procedures and activities; and commitment to conservation.
Successful participants will receive a certificate and will be given the right to use the “Aqua Save” logo in their own publicity material to show that they are a water-friendly organisation. They will also be given recognition and publicity by the State Government; and organisations that have been certified for 3 years will receive additional recognition.
