New Partnership Award recognises cross-industry collaboration

CitySwitch has expanded its recognition of environmental excellence with a newly announced Partnership Award, supported by NABERS, as part of this year's national program awards.

Many Signatories are achieving great energy efficiency wins within their own tenancy and are recognised annually across a number of existing award categories, including for both small and large tenancies along with new joiners to the program. This new partnership category aims to showcase cross-industry collaboration and calls for submissions that show leadership in working with industry stakeholders for increased sustainability outcomes.

This Award is aimed at leaders who are addressing market barriers and helping to transform their own company, sector, and/or wider community and helping energy efficiency reduction activities to be implemented. Contenders for this category will have demonstrated innovative, new collaborations that have helped deliver over-and-above business as usual and helped to drive market change.

Indicators of successful market transformation might include:
> Collaboration with building owners, facility managers or other agents or consultants to unlock barriers to change and performance improvement
> Working with stakeholders and/or supply chain to raise the environmental performance of companies with whom you do business
> Influence on the government or the local and wider community.


All award submissions are due in late October with capital city events announcing state-based winners to be held throughout November. The National CitySwitch Awards ceremony will be held in Sydney on 27 November, announcing all national winners and commemorating the collective program achievements.
