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 2020 celebrate 23 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.
