Nominations are now open for the NSW Government’s 2017 Green Globe Awards — an annual awards program that celebrates exceptional environmental achievements and outstanding sustainability projects throughout the state.
“The awards recognise and celebrate the movers and shakers creating new business models, building community resilience and caring for the natural wonders and unique plants and animals of NSW,” said Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) Chief Executive Anthony Lean. “Recognising these leaders is a boost to inspiring others to step up to the challenge.”
Lean explained that the awards comprise 10 categories showcasing businesses, community groups and individuals who are leading the way in making a progressive, resilient and sustainable NSW. Last year’s winners included companies such as IKEA and Unilever, Charles Sturt University and innovative projects to reduce food waste and deliver better health care for hospital patients.
“We want to hear from potential young sustainability champions, can-do initiatives from not-for-profit groups for the Community Leadership category and dynamic commercial projects for the Business Leadership Award,” said Lean.
“There are also awards for work with positive impact on climate change, innovation, resource efficiency, natural environment and built environment.”
Nominations will be open until 27 June and judged by a panel of independent experts. The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony at The Art Gallery of New South Wales on 19 October.
