QUEENSLAND'S sustainability champions still have time to nominate for this year's Premier's Sustainability Awards.

Environment and Heritage Protection Minister Andrew Powell encouraged Queenslanders to nominate companies, communities, councils or individuals for their commitment to sustainability ahead of the March 14 deadline.

"These awards highlight Queenslanders showing leadership in environmental excellence, who demonstrate the best in innovation and who are working towards building a stronger, more competitive and sustainable future," he said.

"Award categories include built environment, business eco-efficiency, community, innovation in sustainable technologies, rural, small business, minister's award for leadership in sustainability, sustainability in education and a new sustainable heritage category.

"The new Sustainable Heritage category recognises efforts in heritage conservation and adaptive reuse of a place entered in the Queensland Heritage Register."

Mr Powell said each category winner will also receive $2500 to support on-going sustainability projects.

Winners will be announced at an awards presentation dinner hosted by the Premier on May 30 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
