Ten Wellington organisations are finalists in 2015 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards

The finalists for the 2015 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards include 10 Wellington organisations.

They include: Ākina Foundation, HoneyLab and Thunderpants (in the Community Innovation category); Kaibosh and Quigley & Watts (in the Community Impact category); OptiFleet and Wishbone Design Studio (Mega Efficiency Innovation category); Kaibosh, NZ Post and Resene (Mega Efficiency Impact category); and Zealandia (Restorative Impact category).

CEO of the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) Rachel Brown says these organisations 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.
