Green Impact has quickly become ACTS' flagship sustainability engagement and change program. It supports organisations, staff and students in the Australasian region in making tangible changes to their practices, processes and ways of working towards a more positive future. Over the last three years, our Green Impact program has grown into a strong network of staff, students and leaders who are creating positive sustainability changes in their organisations, and has become a valued part of the long-standing Green Impact community.
This year, we are delighted to launch the very first Green Impact Australasia Awards to celebrate the innovations and innovators in sustainability by our regional Green Impact participants. Each of our finalists have been recognised by their respective institutions as individual or team champions as part of the 2019 Green Impact program, and are now in the running to win one of three Australasian Awards.
Congratulations to the well-deserving finalists, who represent sustainability leaders from ten different institutions across the three award categories! We look forward to announcing the winners via a live-stream announcement on the Green Impact Australasia Facebook page at 6pm AEST / 8pm NZST on Thursday 2nd July 2020.
