For the finalists of the 34th Banksia National Sustainability Awards – Australia’s longest running and most prestigious sustainability awards – the message is strong. For humanity to survive, we need biodiversity to thrive.
The finalists, drawn from a record number of entries, demonstrate optimism and hope for a brighter future despite fears of an economic downturn.
We can’t be subject to pessimism. People need to hear our sustainability success stories. These are Australia’s brightest leaders, changemakers and innovators who are making a positive impact on the world.
Reflecting the popularity to conserve, protect and restore Australia’s ecosystems, the Biodiversity, Circular Transition and Net Zero categories received the most entries for the Banksia Awards.
Given Australia’s commitment to protect 30% of the Earth by 2030, it’s fantastic to see our finalists accelerating efforts and acting with the sense of urgency required to regenerate the environment.
Congratulations to all of this year’s finalist.
