geelong waterfront beck mcdonald june 2021aGreater Geelong has picked up five awards in the Keep Victoria Beautiful Sustainable Cities awards, including the major gong.
The region was named the Sustainable City of the Year.
The council also picked up three awards for Waste Management, Coastal Protection and Energy Conservation.
Andrea Dennett from Bellarine Friends of the Hooded Plover was named the Community Green Achiever Award for her work to protect threatened bird life.
Geelong Mayor Stephanie Asher said the city was proud to be recognised.
“Our community wants to see the City proactively showing leadership to reduce our environmental impact, prevent waste, and protect our world-class biodiversity,” Cr Asher said.
“These projects are good for the environment but also make economic sense over the long-term.
“Whether it’s using crushed glass to build roads, putting solar on City facilities, or installing an artificial reef at Portarlington, we’re leading the way on sustainability action at the local government level.”
