Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Awards 2015 call for entries

Entries to the 2015 Victorian Premier's Sustainability Awards are now open, with submissions being sought from government departments, businesses, organisations, community groups or individuals who have participated in the care of the state’s environment and inspired leadership in this area.

Sustainability Victoria CEO Stan Krpan says the awards, which are now in their 13th year, are a great way of acknowledging and rewarding individuals and companies who have made practical and innovative efforts in reducing their environmental impacts, and influencing others to do the same.

“Each year we see such a high calibre of talent from people who are truly passionate about the environment and being innovative in sustainable practices, including developing new products and services,” Krpan says.

“Last year, the Premier’s Sustainability Awards received the highest number of entries since the awards’ inception – we look forward to this year’s entries matching and even exceeding those numbers.”

There are 10 categories in this year’s awards program, including two new ones — the Health Award and the Environmental Justice Award. The categories are:

  • Built Environment Award
  • Community Award
  • Education Award
  • Environmental Justice Award
  • Environmental Protection Award
  • Government Award
  • Health Award
  • Innovative Products or Services Award
  • Large Business Award
  • Small and Medium Enterprises Award

The Premier will personally select two overall winners for the Premier’s Regional Recognition Award and the Premier’s Recognition Award.

Entries close on Monday, 13 July 2015. For more information visit
