Nominations are now open for the Sustainable Environment Award, as part of the Victorian Transport Association’s (VTA) Freight Industry Awards.
The awards recognise achievements across a range of categories, with the winners to be announced on the evening of the event.
Victorian Waste Management Association (VWMA) Executive Officer Mark Smith said there are six awards available including the Sustainable Environment Award, Investment in People Award, Best Practice Safety Award, Application of Technology Award, Female Leadership Award and Young Achiever Award.
“Reflecting on the last 12 months we’ve seen some amazing projects realised by big and small operators,” Mr Smith said.
“I encourage those businesses to apply and share their good news stories. We need to hear them, especially now.”
According to Mr Smith, the Sustainable Environment Award acknowledges the close relationship between the VTA and the VWMA, and recognises implementation of a policy or program and or technological innovation that improves sustainability.
Alex Fraser Managing Director Peter Murphy said the company was honoured to be recognised at last year’s awards for its work with problematic glass waste.
“It was wonderful for our people to be recognised for their innovation, hard work and commitment to getting better outcomes for the planet,” Mr Murphy said.
Alex Fraser won the Waste and Recycling Award, now named the Sustainable Environment Award, for its efforts turning waste into valuable infrastructure building material.
Nominations are open until 28 August.
The event, themed Queen, will be held Saturday 7 September at Crown’s Palladium Ballroom in Melbourne.
