Businesses for Climate Action have won the Communicating for Impact Award at the 2021 Sustainable Business Awards held on 25 November.

The Sustainable Business Awards are New Zealand’s longest-standing sustainability awards. Now in their 19th year, they recognise and celebrate success in sustainability.

The Communicating for Impact Award, sponsored by Kind&Co, is presented to an organisation communicating sustainability effectively to make a tangible impact.

The judges said: “The Businesses for Climate Action campaign has been a model for other regions across Aotearoa to collaborate and include a widening circle of businesses. Communications have built on contributions from the businesses involved.  Overall this is an excellent example of communications on sustainability built from the participants.”

BCA says: “The team is thrilled and humbled to have received this award and feels it is recognition of efforts from across the wider Nelson business community. We are excited about our plans to ramp up efforts in 2022, and what we can do as a collaborative business community to tackle the opportunity and challenges of climate change at scale and at pace.”
