Updated 11 hr(s) 47 min(s) ago

The National Environment Management Authority (Nema) has released its Green List 2010, which recognises the 10 organisations and institutions that it said have continued to comply with its regulations.
Nema lauded Mater Hospital, Aga Khan University Hospital, Sun and Sand hotel, Serena Hotel, Severin Sea Lodge, East Africa Breweries, Total Kenya, Safaricom, Bamburi Cement Factory, Oshwal Academy, and the Nakumatt Supermarkets for the tangible milestones they have made in attaining high levels of compliance to various environmental regulations.
"We salute the achievements of these firms and institutions and urge them to continue sustaining their efforts while striving to reach higher heights," said Nema Deputy Director Environment Education Awareness and Public Participation, Betty Nzioka.
Nema says it will keep its door open to receive feedback on the environmental achievements from various stakeholders in 2011.
"We want to celebrate our unsung heroes and heroines, communities and individual efforts," said Nzioka.

Last year Nema enforced the noise pollution law and launched the Voices of Environment Campaign, which focuses on the performance of the private sector.
