The TFIA is pleased to announce that three winners in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2011 were TCF (textiles, fashion and clothing) enterprises. Amongst this year's winners were Godfrey Hirst Carpets, which won the top Premier's Recognition Award, 3Fish, an organic fairtrade clothing manufacturer, which won the Small Business Award, and RMIT University, which won the Tertiary Education Award.

The Premier's Sustainability Awards 2011 recognise excellence in small and large businesses, state and local government and education, as well as the development of new products and services that support sustainable practice.

Godfrey Hirst Carpets was chosen as the most outstanding winner on the night for its commitment to reduce its impact on the environment in a creative and innovative way that also reduces costs and increases its competitive edge. Godfrey Hirst Australia's water treatment plant, based on effluent recycling and stormwater harvesting, has helped reduce emissions and water consumption by almost 50 per cent.

3Fish, a fast growing fairtrade organic carbon neutral clothing company based in country Victoria, is committed to sourcing clothing produced in a way that is sustainable for the environment, and economically sustainable at all levels of the supply chain - from the grower to the end consumer.

RMIT was recognised for embedding sustainability into its Bachelor of Arts (Textile Design) program and promoting sustainability issues right from the initial design stage.
TFIA CEO Jo Kellock said she was delighted that the TCF sector has been recognised and honoured in this manner. "In recent years this sector has become mindful of the need to integrate sustainability issues into our operations - both to create efficiency gains and also to increase its competitiveness in the global TCF marketplace. These awards are a fantastic acknowledgment by the wider community of the innovations and creativity that has already been happening in this sector. We applaud the winners for their achievements.”

The Textiles and Fashion Industries of Australia (TFIA) is the peak Australian TCF industry body. It is a member driven non profit association that was first established in the 1940s to provide an umbrella organisation with a focal point for a number of sector specific associations. Today the TFIA represents the whole TCF industry and provides effective and influential representation to Government on TCF issues such as industry, trade, environment, education and training.
