Application Tips

  1. Allocate time – Give yourself enough time to complete your submission, most businesses take 1 to 3 hours to complete their application

  2. Adhere to the word limit – Each question has a word limit. It is important to stick to the limit as words written beyond the limit will not be scored

  3. Answer every question – The 3 main questions are weighted equally, each is worth 10 points. If you have a lot of great information written down for one question but leave another question blank it will be challenging to score similarly to other applicants who took the time to answer each question

  4. Evidence – If your sustainable initiatives have specific dates, partners, stakeholders, results or other metrics, make sure to include them in your answers. These details will strengthen your application

  5. Share wins and challenges – Sustainability is a continuous journey, share where you are at, what challenges you have faced, and where you are headed

  6. Submit separate applications – If you are applying for more than one award, consider submitting independent applications. This allows you to tailor your answers for each award, strengthening your application

  7. Past winners – If you have won previously make sure to clearly state the progress of existing initiatives or new initiatives since winning your last EcoStar Award
