Greens Leader to Address Australian Sustainability Awards
Thursday, 18th November 2010 at 11:11 am

Greens leader, Senator Bob Brown will be the keynote speaker at 10th annual Australian Sustainability Awards next month in what will be his first speech to a corporate and investor audience since October’s Tasmanian forestry deal.

Senator Brown is expected to share his perspective on the native-forest logging moratorium and chart Australia's hopes for a sustainable forestry industry.

The 2010 Awards in Sydney will celebrate a decade of achievement in corporate responsibility and responsible investment.

Michael Walsh, the Executive Director of Ethical Investor and Convener of the Australian Sustainability Awards says each year these awards recognise the best companies, institutions and individuals who integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) behaviour into Australia’s corporate and investment culture.

Walsh says profound challenges lie ahead as Australia emerges from a global recession, while also facing global warming and the social pressures of economic development, yet these awards are about recognition, about re-assurance and about proving that the business case for sustainability is realistic and a good thing!

As part of the 10th anniversary Walsh says Ethical Investor is raising the bar with:

  • a more transparent nomination and judging process
  • broader criteria to encompass companies that report their sustainability performance, whether or not they are listed on the ASX
  • and two 10-year achievement awards – Sustainable Company of the Decade and Sustainability Champion of the Decade.
