The New South Wales Sustainability Awards are now accepting entries across a range of categories, which range from biodiversity to net zero initiatives.
The event will consist of eight total awards: the NSW Clean Technology, Biodiversity, Circular Transition, Large Business Transformation, Youth as our Changemakers, Net Zero Action, Small to Medium Business and Minister’s Young Climate Champion awards.
Energy and Environment Minister Matt Kean said the awards will allow New South Wales to showcase some of our best and brightest minds on a national stage with winners automatically entered the prestigious Banksia National Sustainability Awards.
“Entrants for these awards will join a community of sustainability champions who are reimagining the future of New South Wales and the world,” he said.
The awards will celebrate individuals, communities and businesses for their innovation and excellence in environmental and social leadership.
The awards will be presented and run by the Banksia Foundation in partnership with the NSW Government.
Entries for the awards are expected to close on September 15 with winners announced by the end of this year. The winners of the National Banksia awards will be announced in March 2022.
The awards follow the New South Wales Government’s commitment to achieving net zero by 2050.
