75 Finalists Announced For Sustainable Business Awards

Finalists for this year’s Sustainable Business Awards span sectors from food and beverage to fashion, beauty, construction and travel.

The Sustainable Business Awards recognise and celebrate success in sustainability. They have been running for 19 years.

Rachel Brown ONZM is founder and CEO of the Sustainable Business Network, which runs the Awards. She says: “The latest IPCC report on climate change has left no doubt about the imperative to change our ways of living and working. Businesses need to step up – their customers, employees and the planet are demanding it.

“The 75 finalists in these Awards are leading the way. They include corporates, small enterprises and individuals from the public and private sector, showing that whoever you are you can play your part.

“These long-standing Awards celebrate the achievements of these progressive organisations and I hope others will be inspired to follow in their footsteps. It has never been more important.”

The winners for all categories will be announced at a ceremony on 25 November. The ceremony will be held simultaneously in Auckland and Wellington, and broadcast online.

The finalists for the 2021 Sustainable Business Awards are:
