Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Awards 2022

Sustainability Victoria, the Banksia Foundation and Keep Australia Beautiful (Vic)(KABV) are excited to announce a new partnership to deliver the Premier’s Sustainability Awards 2022.

Banksia welcomes the opportunity to be collaborating with these two iconic Victorian sustainability organisations, to deliver a reputable and prestigious awards program that gives business and community recognition and prestige, driving innovative projects and programs forward to build sustainable communities.

The combined approach will bring together different sectors pursuing similar goals, for maximum impact.

The Premier’s Sustainability Awards celebrate and showcase the trailblazers in future energy, thriving environment, sustainable places and destinations, circular economy innovation, creating a healthy and fair society, and waste reduction and litter.

  • Be rewarded and recognised in Victoria with a pathway for national recognition, and position yourselves as leaders in your field/activity
  • Ensure that your staff, volunteers etc are rewarded and recognised for their efforts
  • Highlight to your stakeholders the value of the work you are doing through your nomination or win
  • Connect with other like minded people and increase your networks

Sustainability Victoria, Banksia and KABV aim to assist you to see how your work is aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Your entry should show how your work is aligned to one or more of the SDGs. We think this is important because it demonstrates that each initiative is not working in isolation but contributing to the greater good on a global level.


Environment Protection Authority (EPA)
EPA is Victoria’s environmental regulator. We work with community, industry, and business to prevent and reduce the harmful effects of pollution and waste on our state’s environment and people.

On 1 July 2021, the Environment Protection Act 2017 was introduced to better protect Victoria’s environment from harm. An important part of the new Act is the general environmental duty (GED). The GED applies to all Victorians and requires anyone conducting an activity that poses risks to public health and the environment to understand and minimise those risks.

Like you, we want Victoria’s environment to be a liveable, healthy place. A place where our air, water and land are free of harmful pollutants, now and always.
