The 2013 Winners Circle


2013 Glossies Sponsors


Award Sponsored: Unitywater’s Creekside Greening Award

Unitywater CEO George Theo said Unity Water is proud to sponsor the new Creekside Greening Award as part of the 2013 Glossies. As the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay regions’ provider of water supply and sewerage services, we recognise the important part we play in caring for our ocean, rivers and creeks. Maintaining their ecological health is possible only through the combined efforts of the community and sustainable water supply and sewerage treatment practices. The mark of a healthy river or creek is its native riparian vegetation which is why Unitywater actively works with community groups through our Creekside Greening program to benefit waterway health. Through this award,  Unitywater will acknowledge the great work and the important contribution our communities make in keeping our waterways healthy for future generations.
  • University of the Sunshine Coast

    Award Sponsored: Hall of Fame

    The University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) is one of Australia’s youngest and fastest growing universities. From its establishment in 1996, (USC) made a commitment that sustainability – in the broader sense of that word – was to be a key theme of the institution. This manifested itself in the transformation of what was 100 hectares of disused cane fields and paddocks to an award winning campus – in terms of environmental protection and enhancement and in the built environment.

    It sees, however, that sustainability is far more than the physical environment and has world class research in forestry, fisheries and social and human dimensions of change.

    USC is proud to be associated as a sponsor of these awards again in 2013 and celebrates the wider community’s interest in these now critical issues.
