The EPA Board has funded the EPA Sustainability Award for the past four years to encourage business innovation towards environmental sustainability. The EPA Sustainability Award is a category within the Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards run by Awards Australia.
The EPA Sustainability Award is designed to recognise businesses and organisations who share a passion and commitment for sustainability and to reducing environmental impacts in their business and the community, particularly through waste minimisation and resource efficiency.
Winner of the 2015 EPA Sustainability Award was Veolia, for their innovative state of the art waste management facility at Sorell. In 2014 Hazell Brothers group won the award for its recycling, revegetation and rehabilitation at Leslie Vale Quarry.
Submissions are now closed for the 2016 Awards and the winner will be announced at a gala event later in 2016.
