Operators encouraged to apply for sustainability awards

The awards program, now in its 16th year, provides a platform to showcase industry examples of sustainability and discuss the wide-ranging benefits of these practices. Entries close on 7 June, and finalists will be announced on 13 August. The winners will be revealed on 11 October.

In a company statement, Sustainability Victoria CEO Stan Krpan said the awards celebrated “sustainability not for its own sake, but the flow-on effects that are felt right throughout the community”.

“We have an incredible depth of sustainability talent in Victoria – they’re saving energy and resources, developing and applying new technology, reducing and repurposing waste, regenerating natural and man-made environments, and saving threatened species,” Krpan said.

“This work leads not only to environmental good, but to other tangible benefits in terms of increased productivity, reduced costs, many community benefits and enhanced reputation,” he added.

There are 10 categories in the awards program:

  • Built environment.
  • Community.
  • Education.
  • Environmental justice.
  • Environmental protection.
  • Government.
  • Health.
  • Innovative products or services.
  • Small and medium enterprises.
  • Large business.

As well as awards in each of these categories, the Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews will personally select two overall winners for the Premier’s Regional Recognition Award and the Premier’s Recognition Award.

“We encourage all community or government groups, schools or organisations, small or large businesses with a commitment to sustainability to enter the awards this year, promote their terrific work and highlight the ways they have benefitted,” Krpan concluded.

Additional information, including how to enter the awards and registration for free information sessions – on Monday, 30 April (at 2pm) or Wednesday 16 May (at 10am) – can be found here.
