Judges for the 2016 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards have announced the line-up of finalists.
CEO of the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) Rachel Brown says these organisations and individuals are leading the transformation to a more sustainable New Zealand.
“These Awards are unique. They recognise outstanding achievement in making New Zealand a more sustainable nation.”
“Together we can restore New Zealand’s landscapes, oceans and waterways and we can tackle this nation’s social issues. Those leading on this are pioneering new forms of business success. In my book they all deserve to be New Zealander of the year. It can feel like swimming uphill a lot of the time, so recognising those doing the right thing is vital.”
The Awards are our way of celebrating together. They are one of the ways we recharge ourselves for the challenges to come.”
“I hope New Zealanders give these people and their organisations the support they deserve. Because every time we buy something or support a cause we make a choice about the kind of country we want to live in.”
The Award winners will be announced at a black tie ceremony on 17 November at Shed 10 on Auckland’s waterfront.
