Council a Green Globe Awards finalist
Council is very proud to be announced as a finalist in the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award for Organisations’ category of the 20th anniversary of Green Globe Awards for our work as sustainability leaders.
This includes a strong commitment to protecting our internationally significant environment, adapting to climate change with a flood risk strategy, planting almost 50,000 koala habitat trees, and growing the population of endangered bird species. Council’s Renewable Energy Action Plan has driven the installation of solar power in 16 Council facilities, reducing emissions by 1000 tonnes per year.
Supporting sustainability leaders across New South Wales for 20 years, the annual Green Globe Awards are NSW's premier environmental awards, recognising and celebrating collaboration and partnerships that encourage others to achieve positive change and protect our environment.
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 27 November. Read more about the finalists at www.environment.nsw.gov.au/greenglobes
