Australian Business, Education and Local Government recognized as global leaders in Sustainability
Five Australian Organisations have been announced as finalists for the prestigious International Green AwardsTM which will be presented in London at the iconic Battersea Power Station next Tuesday November 20. 

The 'green oscars' as they are affectionately known, play a crucial role in promoting the principles of environmental responsibility and stewardship to a global audience with recipients recognised as beacons of innovation and leadership paving the way for a more sustainable future. Australian nominated finalists include Focus Press, City of Sydney, Sydney Theatre Company, Bentleigh Secondary College and Hitachi. 
Sustainability Industry spokesperson MOSS CEO Anne-Maree Huxley said "It was not long ago that Australia was considered in some circles to be 10 years behind in Sustainability Innovation and Governance. But after recently hosting the International Green Award's 'Business, Innovation and Sustainability Summits' in Townsville, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth to unveil and showcase Australian best practice and now having 5 Australian organisations as finalists, I think it's fair to say we've caught up and in some sectors are clearly leading the way".  To read more and see what the finalists think   download the whole story here.

International Green AwardsTM shares best practice case studies.

To continue to cross fertilise ideas and share best practice - thanks to the many speakers and sponsors from the recent International Green Awards Asia Pacific Sustainability Summits as well as our major sponsors Industry RE and Renewablelogic we are delighted to share speaker notes and case studies.
