Bob Brown Foundation invites nominations for award recognising contributions to sustainability

The Annual Deni Greene Award, including prize money, was established to honour the late Deni Greene and recognise the many contributions she made to sustainability during her time in Australia.

The Deni Greene Award is for  an Australian who has shown outstanding courage in their work — who has made a significant professional contribution in one or more of the following fields in the past five years — areas in which Deni Greene was particularly active: Sustainability, Ethical investment, Energy, Environmental and social responsibility (including Standards), Environmental communication.

The contribution made is expected to be:

  • Courageous, reflecting actions or positions taken without fear or favour and involving passionate advocacy within their professional field of work,
  • Well researched, strategic and effective, and
  • Ideally cross-disciplinary.

These contributions may relate to paid or unpaid work in a person’s professional area of work, and the contribution may have been made in Australia or overseas. The Award is, ideally, for a person still active in their field and who is likely to continue to make a significant contribution, especially those who have not yet received publicly acknowledgement for their contributions through another award or honour.

Nominations for the Award must be made on a confidential basis and the nominee should not be advised of the nomination. Self-nomination is not acceptable.
