About the Awards

Submit your nomination for the Golden Gecko Award for Environmental Excellence

Submit your nomination for the Community Partnership Resources Sector Awards for Excellence

As Western Australia’s lead agency regulating the State’s resources sector, the department is committed to ensuring the sector is developed and managed responsibly and sustainably for the benefit of all Western Australians.

The annual Resources Sector Awards for Excellence was established by the department to demonstrate and acknowledge that our nationally significant industry is not only sustainable, but also achieves the environmental and community balance expected of industry today.

The Resources Sector Awards for Excellence brings together the prestigious Golden Gecko environmental awards and the Community Partnership Resources Sector Award.

By recognising exceptional advances and innovations throughout the resources sector, the department seeks to encourage higher industry standards to help develop and maintain community confidence in mineral and petroleum activities.

Please note the Safety and Health Resources Sector has now changed to the Work Health and Safety Excellence Awards which will open in April. Please subscribe to the Resources Safety news alerts for more information.
