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.
To help showcase that our nationally significant industry is not only sustainable, but also meets the environmental and community balance that is expected of industry today, the department has established the annual Resources Sector Awards for Excellence.
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.
