The Victoria’s Premier’s Sustainability Awards are now open for entries, this year with a new category.

This year, the new Environmental Volunteering category will recognises the impact made by thousands of dedicated individuals and groups who give their time to look after our most precious asset: our environment.

“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,” says Krpan.

The 2019 Premier’s Sustainability Awards will include categories to showcase every type of sustainability endeavour including Built Environment, Community, Education, Environmental Justice, Environmental Protection, Environmental Volunteering, Government, Health, Innovative Products or Services, Small to Medium Sized Businesses and Large Business.
