Zoomlion Ghana Limited in collaboration with Graphic Communications has launched the Cleanest Region Ranking at Ho Central Market. This initiative is the first of its kind in Ghana.

The campaign seeks to foster environmental cleanliness. The assessment will be done on a monthly basis across all the 16 regions.

To win the competition, a region has to pass an inspection of surroundings by an environmental team.

The team will look for a matrix of things bordering on cleanliness and proper waste disposal management and methods for a maximum score of 60 per cent.

Popular votes from the public will weigh up to 40 per cent for a composite index of 100 per cent.

The Graphic-Zoomlion Cleanest Region Ranking campaign is a partnership initiative of the Graphic Communications Group Ltd. (GCGL) and waste management company, Zoomlion Ghana Limited.

It is part of efforts to promote high standards of hygiene in communities and the country, in accordance with Sustainable Development Goal Six (SDG 6), which addresses access to clean water and sanitation for all.

The campaign is being supported by software company, NERASOL, the Environmental Service Providers Association (ESPA), and the Ministry of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development.

Other partners are expected to come on board in the year-long campaign to improve sanitation and environmental cleanliness.


The Volta Regional Minister, Dr (Med) Archibald Yao Letsa, launched the initiative at the Ho Central Market yesterday and said poor sanitation practices remained the major cause of ill health and diseases among the citizenry.
