GECA is proud to be a supporting partner of the Banksia Foundation’s 2019 Banksia Sustainability Awards.
From their conception 31 years ago, the Banksia Sustainability Awards have become the most prestigious and longest-running sustainability awards in Australia, inspiring excellence across all sectors of sustainability.
The Banksia Sustainability Awards bring together and celebrate the most innovative, effective and outstanding people contributing to improving Australia’s sustainability. The Awards recognise individuals, communities, businesses and government for their innovation and excellence in environmental and social stewardship.
In 2018, the Banksia Foundation restructured the Awards to align with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These 17 global goals aim to unite world businesses, governments and citizens to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and protect the planet.
The categories this year are:
🍃 Small Business
🍃 Medium Business
🍃 Large Business
🍃 Minister’s Award for the Environment
The Minister’s Award will focus on Australians who work to protect and care for our unique and natural environment. The Award recognises innovative projects with national significance that will inspire others to take action.
We encourage GECA licensees to showcase their leadership and innovation by entering the awards. Entries will close on 2 August 2019 at 5pm.
