Applications for the 2010 Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Awards close on Wednesday, February 10.

Submissions are now being taken from organisations that have incorporated sustainability measures into their business or service, recognising innovation and rewarding outstanding achievement in the sustainable use of natural resources.

The theme for 2010 explores the issue of rising to the challenge of change.

This acknowledges that becoming sustainable is not an easy task for business, government and community, but provides inspiration and motivation to tackle the challenge of climate change.

Sustainability Victoria, which manages the Awards on behalf of the Premier, has seen recognition increase a business’ reputation with consumers, suppliers and government. Winners can be seen as good corporate citizens and build the credibility of their business by using the Premier’s Sustainability Award logo on their website and marketing materials.

Award winners can establish ongoing links with winners from other categories and network with the Premier of Victoria, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, executives from large business, and local and state government representatives.

Finalists and sponsors have the opportunity to exhibit at the awards night, which helps to promote their business and keep up to date with current best practice in their industry.

The categories for 2010 are small business, large business, community, products or services and built environment, with new categories for local government, state government and tertiary sector.

Application kits can be downloaded from the Premier’s Sustainability Awards website www.sustainabilityawards.vic.gov.au or call the Banksia Foundation on 03 9684 4667.
