This year for the Hunter Business Chamber Awards, Umwelt Environmental & Social Consultants were delighted to sponsor the Excellence in Sustainability award. This prestigious event acknowledges the region’s most successful organisations and business people.
The sponsored award recognises businesses that are working to reduce the impact of their operations on the environment and/or provide products and services that have positive environment and community outcomes.
A highly commended award was presented to Boomerang Bags in Dungog; a volunteer group working together to eradicate single-use disposable plastic in the community.
The overall winner of the award was Port Waratah Coal Services (PWCS) for their commitment to have gone above and beyond compliance by setting additional measurable targets to shape the way they manage their environmental, social and economic impacts.
Umwelt congratulate Boomerang Bags and PWCS on their commitment to sustainability.
