Finalists announced for 2015 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards

Judges for the 2015 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.

“Our awards are all about recognising the tremendous role they play in this transformation and how important it is for us to share their stories of success,” she says.

“We had a very high number of entries this year which reflects the increasing number of companies who can demonstrate the tangible value they gain from sustainability.

“I congratulate all these organisations on their achievement in reaching the finals of the Awards. I’m really looking forward to celebrating their achievements at our Awards night.”

The Award winners will be announced at a black tie ceremony on Tuesday 24 November at Shed 10 on Auckland’s waterfront. All are welcome and tickets are available to purchase, with early bird tickets now on sale.
