The Premier’s Sustainability Awards, Victoria’s leading sustainability awards programme, are now open for entries, featuring a new category celebrating the outstanding contribution made by volunteers.

Joining the programme’s existing ten categories, the Environmental Volunteering category recognises the impact made by thousands of dedicated individuals and groups who give their time so generously to look after our most precious asset, the environment.

“The annual Premier’s Sustainability Awards are the most prestigious awards programme of their kind in Victoria and are a terrific showcase of leading edge sustainability practices,” says Sustainability Victoria CEO Stan Krpan.

Victorian businesses, schools, government and community groups are encouraged to enter.

“Through these awards, we proudly showcase the businesses, government, schools, institutions and community groups who are leading the way, helping to stop the effects of climate change, developing more integrated circular economies, and creating a more liveable, engaged, prosperous community for us all,” adds Krpan.

“Now is the time to act. Let’s show the world how Victorians are leading the way in sustainability.”

Recent research shows that while sustainability remains an important concern for most Australians, only half believe they are doing enough. The volunteering category will make the awards more accessible to more people who take environmental action in real, practical and tangible ways.

Last year’s winners included a marketplace exclusively for surplus food, the Caulfield to Dandenong level crossing removal project featuring a linear park, a country primary school’s innovative art-based project celebrating the local lakes, wetlands and birdlife, and a campaign by Zoos Victoria and Phillip Island Nature Parks addressing the threat of plastic debris to marine life.

Entries close on Thursday, 13th June.
