ecostore has won the Large Business Trailblazer award and named the Sustainable Business of the Year for the northern region in the Sustainable Business Network Awards held this week.
This follows the results of the Creo/Perceptive Corporate Trust Survey in July, in which ecostore was viewed as the top New Zealand brand leading the way in environmental thinking. The company has used sustainably sourced plant and mineral-based ingredients since its inception in 1993 and has embraced all aspects of sustainability into its business strategy.
The full list of northern region winners can be viewed here. A little shout out to my favourite local café, Kokako, who won the Small and Medium Business Trailblazer award.
The central and southern region awards will be held at the InterContinental Hotel in Wellington on Thursday 24 September. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets.
All regional winners are finalists in the national NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards, to be held in Auckland on Thursday 12 November. The SBN website will have more details soon.
Burgeoning business wanting a sustainable conscience should head along to the workshop on How to Market Sustainability at Auckland Uni on Friday 16 October.
