The Cornwall Sustainability Awards (CSA) encourage, reward, and recognise the excellent work organisations and individuals are doing to improve their own sustainability while positively growing the natural environment in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Launched in 2002, the awards have a long history of identifying, celebrating and accelerating both the fledgling and the longstanding sustainability initiatives across the county, with many winners going on to receive recognition at national awards.

In 2018 the CSA were themed around the plastic waste issue, with a dedicated category focused on finding the initiatives and people that are most effectively tackling the plastic waste challenge.
