Over the last 24 years, The Banksia Foundation has recognised over 350 inspirational, passionate and nationally acclaimed winners. These winners have overcome great challenges of the day, learnt important lessons and shared their story through the Banksia Foundation. Their tireless efforts in making a positive difference to our environment has inspired and motivated other individuals, organisations and companies across Australia to lead on the path towards a more sustainable future.
What we do?
Within Australia there are many initiatives and projects taking place making a real difference today and more importantly ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come. The Banksia Foundation, through our Award Programs, aims to raise the profile of the current sustainability issues facing Australia and recognise those whose initiatives are an encouragement and an example for others to follow.
Being able to assess and share this fountain of knowledge and energy is instrumental to making all the difference and driving enduring change.
What's the Benefit to you?
What Banksia provides for our winners and finalists is public recognition and acknowledgement for their sustainability credentials that can then be taken back to their community, organisation or industry and utilised to motivate and inspire further progress towards sustainable development in Australia.
The Awards Presentation
The Awards are presented at a Gala dinner event, this is an opportunity for the Finalists and Winners to celebrate their achievements and for others in the industry to network and make contact with people working in the field of sustainability across Australia.
Going forward in 2013
This year marks the 25th year of the Banksia Awards. As the focus towards sustainability expands beyond the environment, Banksia has decided to expand its recognition also. Whether the focus is environment, social or economic it is important to recognise initiatives promoting sustainability across all elements for future generations.
Therefore this year and going forward, Banksia will be changing the emphasis of our awards and recognising that financial viability, environmental action and societal impact go hand in hand to ensure a sustainable future for Australia.
