Nominations open for the 2019 EPA Sustainability Award

​The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is calling for nominations for this year's EPA Sustainability Award until entries close on Wednesday 14 August 2019.

EPA Director, Mr Wes Ford said that the Sustainability Award is designed to recognize the practical efforts being made by industry and community sectors towards environmental sustainability.

“The Award is open to Tasmanian businesses, groups and organisations that have developed and implemented clean production initiatives and sustainable practices," said Mr Ford.

“We are interested in showcasing projects and initiatives in energy efficiency, water conservation, resource efficiency, waste minimisation, re-use and recycling.

“Submissions need to demonstrate measurable improvements and any flow-on benefits to the sector or wider community," he said.

“The EPA is particularly keen for nominations from Tasmanian businesses wanting to demonstrate how they are helping to protect the Tasmanian environment," said Mr Ford.    

The EPA Sustainability Award is one of several categories of the Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards (CCA). The Awards, which are run by Awards Australia are designed to recognise individuals, organisations and groups that are making a difference in their local communities and across the State.

Nominations are open until Wednesday 14 August 2019, and the winners will be announced at a Gala presentation on Friday 22 November 2019.

More information about the Awards, including entry criteria, is available on the Awards Australia website, along with the nomination form.

The Environment Protection Authority acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of lutruwita (Tasmania) and pays respect to their Elders, past and present.
