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 manage to sustain their efforts and have been awarded with the certificate for two (2) consecutive years will be recognized with a special incentive/reward upon the renewal of their certification with PBAPP.
