In 1997, Local Government NSW’s predecessor organisation initiated environment awards aimed at the work councils do on behalf of their communities.

The awards in 2021 celebrate 24 years of inspiration from NSW councils in programs, projects and people across 16 award categories, culminating in two prestigious Local Sustainability Awards:

  • For overall council performance, and
  • To recognise the individual achievements of a council staff member or elected councillor in the field of sustainability.

The 2021 Excellence in the Environment Awards will be announced on 7 December at the Prince Henry Centre, Randwick.

Entries for 2021 will open in early June.
