Entries for Premier's Sustainability Awards open

Sustainability Victoria has called on manufacturers to showcase sustainability success stories by entering this year’s Premier’s Sustainability Awards. This program has been unearthing advancements and achievements in sustainability for 21 years.

The awards feature six categories aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Two awards within each category will be presented: the Community Champion Award for individuals and small organisations and the Industry Leader Award for medium and large organisations.

The Premier will also select two overall winners to be presented at the ceremony: The Premier’s Recognition Award for a stand-out submission from the 12 winners and The Premier’s Regional Recognition Award, a stand-out regional organisation/project from all qualifying finalists.

Last year’s Premier’s Recognition Award winners were packaging made from mushroom mycelium and land revegetation in Euroa, showing the diversity of entries in the program.

Matt Genever, Sustainability Victoria Interim CEO, said, “The Premier’s Sustainability Awards provides the platform to acknowledge the tremendous work going on right across the state and I look forward to celebrating the achievements of the many organisations, community groups and individuals leading the way to a sustainable future.”

Entries for the Premier’s Sustainability Awards close on Friday, 30 June 2023 at 5 pm. The judging panel will include a range of independent environmental experts selected for their sustainability and industry expertise.
