This year’s finalists come from a wide variety of sectors including education, local government, community groups, large and small businesses, property management and banking, with strong representation from regional NSW.

“I am thrilled by the extraordinary calibre of the 33 finalists from 10 different categories and congratulate them on their ideas, passion and exemplary commitment to protecting our environment,” Mr Speakman said.

“The Green Globe Awards celebrate the work of NSW organisations and individuals leading the way in making our state a place where people and nature thrive.

“The finalists are movers and shakers of NSW, who inspire us all to take action in caring for our local environment through small and meaningful changes in our everyday activities.”

An independent judging panel of NSW environmental leaders assessed all nominations to choose the finalists. Judges include chief executive officers, policy managers, professors from leading universities and industry association groups.

The Green Globe Award winners will be announced on Thursday, 27 October at the Art Gallery of NSW.
