From their conception 31 years ago, the Banksia Sustainability Awards have become the most prestigious and longest-running sustainability awards in Australia, inspiring excellence across all sectors of sustainability.

The Banksia Sustainability Awards bring together and celebrate the most innovative, effective and outstanding people contributing to improving Australia’s sustainability.

The Awards recognise individuals, communities, businesses and government for their innovation and excellence in environmental and social stewardship.

In 2018, the Banksia Foundation restructured the Awards to align with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

These 17 global goals aim to unite world businesses, governments and citizens to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and protect the planet.

Banksia will once again continue its SDG focus throughout this year’s process.
