Entries now open for the 16th Annual Premier's Sustainability Awards

Showcase your project or initiative at the most prestigious awards program of its kind!

The call has gone out for leaders in sustainable innovation and practices to enter the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2018.

The awards are open to businesses, social enterprises, not-for-profits, state or local government, institutions, community groups or individuals, in any sector.

Taking part can lead to wide-ranging benefits. Not least is the opportunity to demonstrate your sustainability work and promote it with your stakeholders.

“Being nominated for an award was further recognition for our shareholders, board and staff that we had been successful in driving process innovation and had demonstrated leadership within our industry” says Steve Laussen, chief executive officer of Kingfield Galvanising, a TAKE2 member and winner in the small business category last year.

“The connections we made on the evening and the recognition gained from our participation has provided great impetus to our business and a real sense of achievement for our staff.”

Another 2017 winner and TAKE2 member was the CERES Community Environment Park, which took out the education category. “Having this opportunity allowed us to stop, reflect and celebrate what we achieved,” says Group Manager of Education and Training Lorna Pettifer.

“Through our involvement, we increased our exposure in the media, met people from new organisations, updated our battery recycling and engaged partners in new projects,” says Lorna. “I would highly recommend others to be part of the awards in 2018.”

  • Built environment
