Nominations are now open for the 2015 Premier’s Sustainability Awards, which showcase the work of Queenslanders who are setting best-practice benchmarks in environmental performance with Queensland councils encouraged to nominate their energy, water and waste saving projects to be recognised for outstanding innovation that results in reduced environmental impact.
Applications for the sustainability awards are open to Queensland-based initiatives, businesses, communities, schools, individuals, not-for-profit organisations and local government areas that share the Government’s commitment to a more sustainable future.
By rewarding leaders in sustainable practices, the Queensland Government is ensuring continued economic growth into the future.
Each category winner will receive $2,500 to support on-going or future sustainability projects.
The winners of the sustainability awards will be officially announced on Thursday 5 November 2015 at an awards presentation dinner hosted by the Premier at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
