Every year, the Northern Beaches Council wants to applaud local businesses who do their bit for sustainability. That’s why we sponsor a special Sustainability Award alongside the prestigious annual Northern Beaches Local Business Awards.

We Want to Reward your Commitment to Sustainability

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.

Nominations are now closed.

Share best-practice ideas by joining the Sustainable Business Network

For best-practice ideas and practical support, join the Smart Sustainability Business Network. It’s a forum for local businesses share their experiences on how to incorporate sustainable practices into day-to-day operations. It’s also Council’s opportunity to share updates on sustainability information.

To register contact Kirstie Richardson Bull, Council’s Sustainability Office and find out what’s coming up.
