Your chance to vote: Sustainable Business Network Awards

Good magazine is a huge fan of the annual Sustainable Business Network Awards and this year it’s being run a little differently as well as having a new award added to the mix!

The judges have announced five finalists for the Resilience in Crisis Award and the winner will be chosen by public vote. 

The new Resilience in Crisis Award has been created to recognise business resilience in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is focused on successful responses with sustainability outcomes.

The finalists are:

  • Cultivate Christchurch – youth development through urban farming. During lockdown it switched to home deliveries of fresh produce.
  • Heilala Vanilla – pure vanilla products from a farm in Tonga. It used vanilla extraction tanks to produce hand sanitiser.
  • Kaitiaki Adventures – Māori owned and operated adventure tourism company. It created a Māori-focused environmentally-friendly water catcher. 
  • Student Volunteer Army – thousands of student volunteers who created a grocery delivery service.
  • Whenua Iti Outdoors – outdoor programmes that blend adventure, culture, environment and wellbeing. It pivoted to online learning and community-based programmes.

The Awards Ceremony will also be broadcast online and is free to view, and it will be accompanied by regional events up and down the country.

Winners will be announced across 12 categories of sustainable business, as well as the Transforming New Zealand Award – the supreme award. 

View the full list of finalists and vote for the winner of the Resilience in Crisis Award.

Voting closes at 6pm on 19 November and the winner will be announced shortly afterwards at the Awards ceremony.

And congrats from Good to all the finalists! You’re all awesome!
