Victoria’s sustainability leaders are being urged to enter this year’s Premier’s Sustainability Awards and to share their insights with people, organisations and companies across the state.
According to Stan Krpan, the CEO of Sustainability Victoria, the Premier’s Sustainability Awards are a great way to recognise Victoria’s sustainability talent.
“The bar gets higher every year,” Krpan said of the awards, which have been running now for 15 years.
“We’re delighted to see increasingly diverse and interesting ways that people are working hard to combat the effects of climate change and improve the environment.”
There are 10 categories in the program, covering every type of sustainability work right across Victoria:
- Built Environment
- Environmental Justice
- Environmental Protection
- Innovative Products or Services
- Large Business
- Small and Medium Enterprises.
As well as awards in each category, the Premier will select two overall winners for the Premier’s Regional Recognition and the top award, the Premier’s Recognition Award.
“Community groups, schools, state and local government, businesses and individuals with a commitment to sustainability are encouraged to enter these awards,” Krpan said.
“We want to recognise them and their wonderful work, and hopefully inspire others to think about their own environmental contributions.”
For information about how to enter the awards or to attend an information session, go to www.sustainabilityawards.vic.gov.au. Entries close on 21 June 2017.
