The Alternative Technology Association (ATA) has been named a finalist in the 2017 Green Globe Awards, recognition for the not-for-profit organisation’s work over nearly four decades promoting sustainable living.
The Green Globe Awards are the NSW Government’s awards for leadership, commitment and innovation in sustainability. They showcase people and projects making progress towards sustainability.
The ATA is a finalist in the Climate Change Leadership category. Award judges said:
“Before terms such as greenhouse, renewables, carbon neutral, and even solar became part of the conversation, the Alternative Technology Association provided a forum for enthusiasts concerned about the use of fossil fuels and pollution.
“Climate change leaders before it was cool, the association’s focus on renewable energy, energy efficiency, water conservation and sustainable building design has helped hundreds of thousands of Australians since 1980 to take climate change action in their own homes.”
The winners of the Green Globe Awards will be announced by the Hon Gabrielle Upton, Minister for the Environment, Local Government and Heritage, at the Art Gallery of NSW on October 19.
