Congratulating the recipients, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim said: "This is the highest accolade in Singapore's Environment and Water Resources field. The recipients are a good blend of active citizens who have made a significant impact and contribution from the highest level of decision-making and diplomacy, to the grassroots levels actually activating such change. I am confident that as first recipients of the award they will inspire more of us to strive, care and make a difference to our environment in our own unique ways, whether as individuals, as groups or as companies."
