Australian businesses are emerging as world leaders in tackling environmental challenges with 2019 Banksia Sustainability awards shining the light on some incredible innovation.
I am particularly thrilled to announce the finalists for this year’s Minister's Award for the Environment, which recognises innovative projects of national significance that inspire others to take practical environmental action.
This year’s finalists are addressing projects that reduce and recycle eWaste, protect threatened species through environmental offsets, produce innovative cleaning solutions with low environmental impact, and which encourage the community to reduce plastic waste.
I’ve been extremely impressed by the level of ingenuity and creativity demonstrated by these organisations, and the dedication and commitment of their team members.
The finalists are:
I congratulate everyone who submitted entries in each of the Banksia Award categories and wish them every success in their future endeavours.
Their enthusiasm and commitment underlines the fact that we can all play a role in protecting the environment through practical, local action.
The Banksia Environmental Foundation was created in 1989 to support and recognise members of the community for their positive contribution to the environment.
The winner will be announced 3 December 2019.
