Applications are now open for the 2021 Premier’s Sustainability Awards! EPA Victoria is the proud sponsor of the Healthy Environment Industry Leader award.
On 1 July 2021, the Environment Protection Act 2017 was introduced to better protect Victoria’s environment from harm caused by pollution and waste. An important part of the new Act is the general environmental duty (GED). The GED applies to all Victorians and requires anyone conducting an activity that poses risks to public health and the environment to understand and minimise those risks.
By sponsoring the Healthy Environment – Industry Leader Award, we want to recognise and support businesses who have taken action to protect or enhance of Victoria’s natural environment.
What are the Premier’s Sustainability Awards?
Now in their 19th year, the awards recognise and celebrate Victorians who are leading the way in sustainable innovation and practices. The awards play a significant role in showcasing success stories that provide inspiration to the rest of the state.
As environmental sustainability becomes increasingly important, the awards seek to inspire industry, businesses communities, local governments, schools and individuals across Victoria to take action towards a more sustainable future.
The awards deliver a great opportunity to network with key environmental, industry and government groups, as well as attract new customer bases and build new relationships.
Finalists and winners are also supported with media releases, photos, and social media content to promote their sustainability achievements to their networks and wider community.
