Enable says now’s the time to enter the Premier’s Sustainability Awards

Previous entrants in the Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Awards say that their involvement has led to better staff morale, improved profiling with their customers and stronger community relationships.


Recent research by Sustainability Victoria says that entrants not only demonstrate increased energy efficiencies and reduced bills through their sustainability projects, by telling their stories through the Awards they enjoy a range of other benefits.


Finalist in the 2018 Community category, Julie McKay, is Founder and Managing Director, Enable Social Enterprises, established in 2013 as a not-for-profit to tackle high unemployment in Melbourne’s north by providing employability skills, most notably sustainability employment skills.


Their e-waste enterprise not only creates paid work, it diverts many tonnes of e-waste from landfill. Julie said, “The Premier’s Sustainability Awards are known as the key awards in Victoria and provide that WOW factor which profiles us by telling our story.


“The recognition has contributed to a 21 per cent increase in employment hours, has helped to expand customer reach – finding them through B to B has grown our retail sales by 32 per cent and helped us to win a three year grant via local government.”

In the Awards’ 17-year history, businesses, schools, organisations and community groups have enjoyed the chance to not only demonstrate their sustainability success, but to promote it.


“Our 2018 finalists and winners tell us that the Awards’ process improves engagement and marketing opportunities at every stage. From the time they complete their entries through to the announcement of finalists, then at the prestigious ceremony to announce winners and beyond, entrants report a really positive experience,” Sustainability Victoria CEO, Stan Krpan, said.


“Now is the time for any group doing good sustainability work to highlight their sustainability through the Premier’s Sustainability Awards.”


Entries close at 5pm Thursday, 13 June, 2019. More information @ www.sustainabilityawards.vic.gov.au Media: Cath Newell 0423 587 478
