Young eco-warriors, business leaders, social enterprises and long-time leaders of the environmental movement are all represented in the list of finalists for the 19th annual Green Globe Awards announced by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage Chief Executive, Anthony Lean.
The diverse group of 40 finalists was selected from over 150 nominations representing a vast range of sectors, from all corners of the state and all walks of life.
Their work is broad. From protecting water quality to community-run renewable energy advances. From creative solutions to plastic recycling and sustainable packaging to agriculture and bush regeneration around NSW.
Nominees also represent emerging areas such as ethical fashion and indigenous businesses for the first time, demonstrating the growing reach of these prestigious awards. GECA’s CEO, Kate Harris, is thrilled to be on this year’s panel of judges.
“I love being a part of the Green Globes! In fact, the entire judging panel feels the same way,” explained Kate.
“It’s the inspiration, imagination and dedication of the next generation of businesses, communities and individuals that inspire us in our own work. Thanks to the NSW Government for continuing to create this opportunity.”
The winners will be announced on 4 October 2018, with awards from 13 categories to be handed out on the night including the Premier’s Award for Environmental Excellence and the Regional Sustainability Award.
