We want to reward your commitment to Sustainability!

Every year, Northern Beaches Council applauds both our local businesses who do their bit for sustainability. That’s why we sponsor a special business Sustainability Award as part of the prestigious annual Northern Beaches Local Business Awards; and host the annual Eco Awards and awards night.

Business Sustainability Award

The Northern Beaches Local Business Awards are a community accolade for business excellence. But the Northern Beaches Council Sustainability Award is more: it’s a discretionary award that showcases your business for actively pursuing sustainable practices.

The award highlights excellence in embedding sustainability practices in business planning, operations and marketing. We had a great response last year which highlights the growing importance of environmental sustainability in local businesses.

Anyone can nominate a business for the Sustainability, including customers, community members, businesses owners and staff. Self-nominations are also welcome.

Nominations are currently open for the Business Sustainability Award

Closes Monday 10 June, midnight
