CRP was one of five recipients of the 5th Climate Champions Award to protect nature, given by the HSBC Bank and the Daily Star Newspaper.
CRP was given the award as a result of its initiatives regarding recycling paper and other materials. CRP uses recycled paper to make stationary such as envelopes, visiting cards and file folders. It also uses recycled materials to make furniture such as chairs, tables, toys and therapeutic items for disabled children and patients. Other recycling and environmental friendly initiatives include producing compost from kitchen waste, incinerating medical waste, and recycling waste water through a water treatment plant.
The award was presented by the Environment Minister, Anwar Hossain Manju, at a ceremony held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Dhaka on 29th April, 2017. Shitangshu Kumar Sur Chowdhury, Deputy Governor of Bangladesh Bank, Francois de Maricourt, CEO, HSBC Bangladesh, and Mahbub Ur Rahman, Deputy CEO, HSBC Bangladesh, were also present on stage during the award giving.
