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

This year the Excellence in the Environment Awards celebrated 22 years of inspiration from NSW councils in programs, projects and people across 16 award categories, culminating in two prestigious Local Sustainability Awards: one for overall council performance, and one to recognise the individual achievements of a council staff member or elected councillor in the field of sustainability.
