Shining the spotlight on our best and brightest

20 Nov 2017

In 2018, we will be celebrating the 15th year of Green Star and our industry’s sustainability transformation.

To align with this anniversary, the Green Building Council of Australia is excited to announce the inaugural Stellar Awards.

On Thursday, 27 September 2018, the Stellar Awards will recognise and reward the projects and people that stand out.

Australia’s property and construction industry is admired around the world for its commitment to social, economic and environmental sustainability. And now it’s time for us to celebrate our sustainability successes.

The awards will celebrate rising stars and lifetime luminaries, exceptional organisations and dazzling projects.

Among the accolades are company awards for building product manufacturers, construction and professional services firms, development and government leadership. Professional awards will be presented for lifetime achievement, future green leadership, social sustainability and innovation. There will be project awards in various categories, as well as the ‘best of the year’ awards.

But the Stellar Awards represent far more than a chance to clap each other on the back.

Celebrating success is vital as we work towards a sustainable future. Acknowledging the standout successes of our leaders can act as a catalyst for other teams to say: “we can achieve this too”. Or even: “if they can do that, we can do even better”. 

The Stellar Awards also presents a new opportunity for us to come together as an industry to reflect on our achievements and reinforce how far we have travelled.

Thousands of people in our industry have a common goal – a truly sustainable built environment.

The Stellar Awards will bring everyone together to cheer on the best projects and brilliant minds as we work towards a sustainable future.
