The Sustainable Business Awards are New Zealand’s longest-running and pre-eminent sustainability awards. Now in their 19th year, they recognise businesses, local government, social enterprises and individuals for success in sustainability.
Entry to the awards is free. It is open to all organisations and individuals in New Zealand.
Rachel Brown ONZM is CEO of the Sustainable Business Network. She says: “New Zealand’s economy has fared relatively well over the past year, but the impacts on some sectors will be felt for years to come. The ongoing impact of Covid-19 has highlighted the need for us all to connect with nature and our communities. Businesses that are making those connections and collaborating are leading the way to a more resilient, regenerative Aotearoa.
“Kiwis want to know who is making a positive difference, so we can support these businesses over the coming years. And that’s where these Awards come in. They are a great way to celebrate your sustainability achievements and share them with Aotearoa.”
The Sustainable Business Awards provide the chance to compete in 10 categories of sustainable business:
- Sustainability Superstar
