The Premier’s Sustainability Awards judging is conducted independently of Government and Sustainability Victoria to ensure a fair and unbiased process and outcome.
In 2022 the judging process is organised and over seen by the Banksia Foundation and Keep Australia Beautiful Victoria (KABV).
The Premier’s Sustainability Awards entries go through a two round judging process by Banksia and KABV’s Victorian team of judges. Banksia will be assessing Stream 1 – Industry Leader and KABV will be assessing Stream 2 – Community Champion. The judges are experts in their field and this expertise is matched to the relevant category for assessment. Judges absent themselves from judging any entry which may be a conflict of interest.
Final decisions are made and reviewed in an audit by the Awards Governance Committee, which is made up of a senior panel of judges. All judges sign and are bound by a confidentiality agreement.
